Eli Reader's Confessions

My intention, when I created this blog, was to write every day about the things I have been reading, most notably the books on my long list of things to read. Obviously, I have failed in this endeavor. That isn't to say that I haven't been reading. Quite the contrary. I am currently reading Alice in Wonderland, Gulliver's Travels, and this interesting book that I really want to blog about called Ghetto Nation by Cora Daniels. In addition to that, and what takes up the majority of my reading time, I'm reading about how to best teach reading to students for whom English is not their first language, about language and literacy acquisition (my graduate degree) and educational philosophy. As I was sure these topics would bore whatever readers I actually have, I have decided to post my responses to my master's studies here as well. At least then I will have faster access to these essays than if I have to find them on my external harddrive.

Eli Reader's readers be told, I am going to make a concerted effort to blog about the other things I'm reading, especially this Ghetto Nation. When I finish the introduction, which gives the author's premise for the book, there will be a post from me. Quite possibly this evening. Keep an eye out.

Yours, and attempting to be more faithful,

Eli Reader
