Fall 2012 Reading List
October 12, 2012, 3:18 pm
Filed under: rhetoric

I always admire the way Clay Spinuzzi shares reviews of some of what he reads (which is a lot!). And I always feel a sense of mourning when I have to return a book to the library, or when a new amazon delivery is sped-read before bed and then stacked on a shelf.

While I take copious notes, I tend to not make much of my thoughts on the books or articles too public. Sometimes they make their way into literature reviews for current scholarship I’m working on, but sometimes not.

I have fond memories of my comp-exams days (no really!) when I got to spend 8-10 hours a day doing nothing but reading for an entire semester. Each semester I try and put together a reading list for myself, similar to what I did back for comprehensive exams. So, here’s a list of books I’ve currently got out of the library now or recently received from amazon.

I’ll plan to write up little public reviews of them as I can, but probably nothing as useful as Clay’s reviews. If some of what I list below reminds you of other scholarship I should check out, please note that in a comment! Thanks!

You might want to check out Jenny Rice’s book *Distant Publics*. It seems like it would fit right alongside the others you list.

Combating multilevel marketing stigma requires avoiding such reasons.
OK Bob (or Barbara), here is what I want you to do.

In case your network marketing venture won’t become successful, at least you won’t go broke because you
didn’t invest all your money on it.

I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you
have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that
not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my
hunt for something concerning this.
