Each week, Sam over at Taking on a World of Words asks the following three questions: 
What are you currently reading? 
What did you recently finish reading? 
What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

  • African American Literature 1850-1900: W.E.B. Du Bois's The Souls of Black Folk
  • Amiri Baraka and the Black Arts Movement: essays from The LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka Reader
  • Civil Rights Movement: Chapters 8-9 of Michael K. Honey's Southern Labor and Black Civil Rights
  • Women and Social Movements: Kim E. Nielsen's Un-American Womanhood: Antiradicalism, Antifeminism, and the First Red Scare

Pleasure/Other Reads: 
Got plenty of submissions to keep me company as well as reading articles and short stories for my workshop paper on Cormac McCarthy's short stories.

What did you recently finish reading?

  • African American Literature 1850-1900: Elizabeth Keckley's Behind the Scenes, or, Thirty years a Slave, and Four Years in the White House

  • Civil Rights Movement: Chapters 5-7 of Michael K. Honey's Southern Labor and Black Civil Rights
  • Women and Social Movements:Patricia Schechter's Ida B. Wells-Barnett and American Reform, 1880-1930
Pleasure/Other Reads: 
I finished listening to Marilynne Robinson's Gilead. I originally read it last year for Forms of Fiction, but I listened to it again in preparation to listen to Lila once it becomes available. 

Got through some more submissions (always a good thing) but they just keep coming :) 

Also read Rachel Carson's The Marginal World and Penny Le Couteur and Jay Burreson's Making History With Vitamin C for the 10th grade class I'm an in-class tutor for.


What do you think you’ll read next?

  • African American Literature 1850-1900: part two of W.E.B. Du Bois's The Souls of Black Folk
  • Amiri Baraka and the Black Arts Movement: more essays from The LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka Reader
  • Civil Rights Movement: (break for midterms)
  • Women and Social Movements: Dorothy Sue Cobble's The Other Women's Movement: Workplace Justice and Social Rights in Modern America (Politics and Society in Twentieth-Century America)

Pleasure/Other Reads:
   
Still waiting for Lila. Until then, I've been catching up on sports podcasts and radio shows because I don't want to get something long started and then have to pause. As soon as Lila comes in, I'm binge listening.

As always, I've got prose and poetry submissions to read. With fall break coming up soon, I'll have some more free time to read through a lot of them during my week off.
