School is back in full swing. Have I told you my classes this semester? Administrative Ethics and Quantitative Techniques.
So far Administrative Ethics has been interesting and so far in Quantitative, I am keeping up. -That is a very good thing. It is so difficult for people to pass his class, much less get a good grade in it, that he skews his grading scale, where a 100-86 is an A; a 85-76 is a B; and so on….below a B for me doesn’t matter, cause if I make lower than a B, I have to retake the class. Regardless, I have kept up so far, and have ALMOST, ALMOST enjoyed the topics.
My one criticism is that the guy needs to pause to take a breath, let us ask questions or merely to give our brains half a second to process and keep up. I write for almost 3 hours straight, and am recording the classes in hopes of understanding the topics he is breezing through. Anyway, so far so good.
Sooo, when I ordered my school books, this semester, I included a few “leisure” reading books. NOT that I have any spare time, however if I do, this is the stack I will be choosing from.
The first priorities are If Aristotle Ran General Motors, Lying, and The Secret Sharer – all required for my Admin Ethics class. For Quantitative, my teacher wrote the book/pack we use, so there is really no other reading. My leisure reading choices are as follows (in no particular order): When Crickets Cry, Crazy Love, Chasing Fireflies and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
Have any of you read any of them? What are your recommendations? Any particular one I should start out with? As I finish them, I will review them. If you are interested in the reviews of other books I have read this year – of which I recommend them all, you can find them at the following links: The Shack, Slumdog Millionaire, Same Kind of Different As Me, and Marley & Me.
