Books Acquired Recently

Doerksen, Paul G. Take and Read: Reflecting Theologically on Books. Eugene, OR: Wipf & Stock, 2016.

Doerksen is a Mennonite theologian and I bought this book thinking it was him reflecting on pieces of literature. It turns out it’s him reflecting mostly on other works of theology, which is less exciting, but still somewhat thought-provoking.

This and Rodríguez’s book were purchased from amazon.com’s network of independent sellers.

Grayson, David, ed. Full of Moonlight: Haiku Society of America 2016 Members’ Anthology. New York: Haiku Society of America, 2016.

I received this anthology as part of my Haiku Society of America membership benefits. I have one poem in it: “winter morning / lube beside the bed”

Rodríguez, Juana María. Queer Latinidad: Identity Practices, Discursive Spaces. New York: New York University Press, 2003.

I’ve been reading a lot of queer theory lately for a project I am working on, but have not yet read any from a Latinx perspective, and thus decided to buy Rodríguez’s book to help remedy that lack.

Rowling, J.K. [as Kennilworthy Whisp]. Quidditch Through the Ages. New York: Arthur A. Levine Books, 2001.

I picked this book up at Barnes & Noble recently when doing some holiday shopping. I look forward to seeing how Rowling works in the genre of the sports book, albeit for a made-up sport.
