2018-2019 Book List

Book List:

In the past, there have been some who have purchased the kindle editions instead of the actual book. I highly discourage reading on a kindle because it is very difficult to find the sections for which we are discussing in class. It is my hope you will purchase the editions within the links provided below that we might all “be on the same page,” literally. While in a class discussion, or whether completing a Canvas assignment and referring to a particular quote in your book, we will all be able to go to that page and mark it according to what inspires us. The best reason for purchasing the book, though, is to build your library with which you can return to read your favorites all throughout your life.

To save a little money, I encourage you to find used books in very good condition if possible. Here is a short video explaining how you might do that on Amazon. https://www.useloom.com/share/10becb951003435f9c2f13715523954a
