So far the reading this semester…

So far the reading this semester has been much better than last semester. I’ve read two books this week, going to be four next week. I’m actually upset that I don’t get to spend more time with them. I’m having to read some very interesting books, like Stripping the Altars, like a graduate student, which is a very specialized form of reading that involves a mixture of skimming and very, very in depth reading. It’s hard to explain. I guess the easiest way would be to say read the first and last few sentences, then decide if you need to read the whole paragraph.

I wish I had the time to read most of these more closely. I get 90% of them this way, though. It’s a shame that the time requirements of graduate school force this upon us, but even the professors note that this is how you have to read them.
