  1. Wow, Joe! That looks like a pretty hefty list for a single quarter! That is the one thing I don’t miss about school; I loved being challenged to look at new material and new perspectives, and getting to converse on the thoughts that arise, but it always annoyed me to get roped into all the reading with no time left to read anything else. I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you’re reading as you progress through the quarter though.

  2. And I’m not even full time! I hear what you’re saying about other readings, but of the seven courses I’ve taken at Fuller thus far, all with equivalent reading lists, I’d say there are MAYBE four or five books that I disliked substantially, and wish I hadn’t had to read. I’ve been able to get some other ‘casual’ reading in throughout, though, which has been good. Definitely a big jump in required readings from my music education undergrad!
