My summer reading list

The spring 2018 semester is over at UALR. I’m going to spend about two weeks outside doing some long overdue landscaping: I have a pond I need to finish – the frogs are getting cranky.  I might have to pitch a tent!

I also hope to do a great deal of writing and reading in between taking three summer classes. Am I crazy? I’m taking Document Design, Nonfiction, and Digital Nonfiction. (I’m really excited about Digital Nonfiction).

I also hope to upgrade my computer system and get some practice collaborating online in Google Hangouts and GoToMeeting.

For any bookworms out there, here’s my summer reading list. (It started out a reasonable size, but the list seems to keep growing. Oh well, one can never have too many books!)

  • All That Is Bitter & Sweet: A Memoir, Ashley Judd
  • Delta Empire: Lee Wilson and the Transformation of Agriculture in the New South, Jeannie Whayne
  • Digital Storytelling: Capturing Lives, Creating Community, Joe Lambert/Center for Digital Storytelling
  • ANYTHING BY JOAN DIDION (South and West, The White Album)
  • Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, Matthew Desmond
  • On Writing Well, William Zinsser
  • Podcasting for Dummies, Tee Morris
  • River of Time: My Descent into Depression and How I Emerged with Hope, Naomi Judd
  • Sawbill: A Search for Place, Jennifer Case
  • Some of the Words Are Theirs, George H. Jensen, Jr.
  • Winning Grants Step by Step: The Complete Workbook for Planning, Developing and Writing Successful Proposals, Tori O’Neal-McElrath
  • Word By Word, Kory Stamper

I also love reading older books and I have few I bought on eBay that I hope to disappear into:

  • From Tangier To Tripoli, Frank G. Carpenter, 1925
  • Lifeline in the Sky: The Story of the U.S. Military Air Transport Service (MATS), Clayton Knight, 1957
