Our text books are in at the book store now. I like to try to get in as early as I can, and beat the line ups. Also, I'm slow reader, so I like to knock a couple novels off before classes start. Does anyone else do that or am I the biggest keener around?
These are the books I've read so far. Well, I'm halfway through one of them. Some early science fiction, some classical Greek, and a historical fiction by Marilyn Bowering (who teaches creative writing at VIU).
I have to admit that I've had the reading list for my scientific romance class for months already, because it's a directed study; otherwise I never would have been able read that many by now. Doing a directed study is a great idea, by the way. If you can find a prof who's interested, you write the syllabus with them, and get full credit for one-on-one work!
Good luck with text books and registration everyone! We've got one month of summer left; let's make the best of it!
