New Reading List

I'd like to write a more profound post right now, but I'm facing three fellowship application deadlines that are occupying most of my time right now. Plus, I'm still slogging away at my Ph.D. exams reading lists, which are severely limiting my intake of Mormon literature right now.

Thanks to my parents and Christmas cheer, however, I am now the proud owner of a Kindle Touch. E-readers, I have discovered, are cooler than books. I'm looking forward to the death of non-essential paper in 2022. 

Since activating my Kindle, I have downloaded several inexpensive e-copies of Mormon literary works. Someday, I hope to read them all. 

Here they are:
Monsters & Mormons, Wm Morris and Theric Jepson
Entwined, Heather Dixon
What of the Night?, Stephen Carter
People of Paradox, Terryl L. Givens
Kindred Spirits, Christopher Kimball Bigelow
Heroes of the Fallen, David J. West

Recently, I've also purchased paper copies of:
Fire in the Pasture, ed. Tyler Chadwick
Dancing Naked, Robert Hodgson Van Wagoner

And received copies of:
In the Mirror, Ann Carbine Best 
Wasatch: Mormon Stories and a Novella, Douglas Thayer
In Heaven as it is on Earth: Joseph Smith and the Early Conquest of Death, Samuel Morris Brown
Exhibiting Mormonism: The Latter-day Saints and the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, Reid Neilson

These books should keep me busy for a while. My dilemma now is finding time to read them.

  1. Good reading list. I've got a number of those on my "to read" list, but right now I'm working on "A Sense of Order and Other Stories."

  2. .

    I just bought "Dancing Naked" (had to after reading one of Wagoner's stories in an old Dialogue), but it's already tumbled to the bottom of the pile. Sigh.
