My books are here! I have 4 textbooks for 2 classes sitting here on my desk. It was well worth the $10 to have them shipped to me instead of driving an hour each way to wait in a long line with 5 children. (since the bookstore is only open from 9am - 4pm right now). So here's what I've got for books.English 105
Writing Prose - Techniques and Purposes
Thinking it Through: A practical Guide to Academic Essay Writing
Canadian Politics concise Third Edition (is there another 3rd edition that's not concise?)
Crosscurrents: Contemporary Political Issues 5th edition
I looked at the books - The political science should be interesting - though maybe more work for me as I've never studied Canadian history and it seems to assume a certain level of knowledge.
But I'm scared of the English class. I don't like writing essays esp ones using different literary devices. Then the books is full of those dreaded questions "What do you think is the authors purpose?", "analyze the "tone" and how does the "tone" make you feel?
It's about enough to trigger nightmares from high school English classes. For the record - I got straight A's in high school English and hated every minute of it!
