Another holiday season has come and gone, and once again I received a decent number of books as gifts. I also received some cash that I am going to spend at the MLA book fair in Seattle next week. With one exception, the books are either queer or Mennonite, my two main reading areas, and Rodríguez and Sánchez Korrol’s book relates to my recent research on my Puerto Rican heritage.
