I got some books out of the library to read during the winter break. Calvino, Sciascia, Tabucchi are really the only Italian novelists I know at all, so I got some novels by them to continue my 100-novel-project. Maybe I'll know some Italian when I finish these four novels. I'm also bringing back some Ashbery and Koch for my 9000 book project, and some literary theory for my course next semester. In short, it looks like I have a lot of reading to do.

I'm going to prepare some mini-lectures on theory for the course. Maybe 15 20 minute spiels, corresponding to approximately half of the class meetings. It will be like a 120-page book. I'll have to think of what topics I want to cover.
