  1. I’m in Toronto and have several GRE study books that I’d like to sell or possibly giveaway. Can anyone recommend anywhere to post them online? Alternatively- is anyone in need of some?
  2. Hi I am from India, I want to pursue PsyD in counseling psychology. Can you please tell me which books should I study from for my Subject GRE (Psychology). If anybody has a pdf and can share it with me, please let me know, that will be of great help. Thank you in advance.
  3. Recent grad here awaiting my degree to post on my transcript so not a full-fledged ASHA member (yet). That said, in the spirit of full disclaimer: Yes, I am hoping to recuperate some of the cost spent on my textbooks... I tried re-selling them on Amazon, but no bites or even nibbles thus far... When did this get so complicated? Anyway, I'm going to try to figure out how to post the links to my individual seller account from Amazon. If anyone wanted to pick them up and pay me in person, I'm currently in the Koreatown area in Los Angeles, CA. If I still have the merchandize, I'd be happy to arrange a meet up at a local Starbucks or what have you... As sad as this sounds, this is my first post here, so I'm going to post this as a test. The info on the books to follow! =)
  4. Coming from the 2018 venting thread to make a new thread (per the suggestion of @unicornsarereal) about what books we all plan to read in the coming months to prepare for entering a grad program. Mine are mostly canonical Modernist texts, but I’m also planning on reading “The Limits of Critique” by Rita Felski, which I’ve been told is a great read for any aspiring scholar. What about y’all?
  5. Hey everybody, I'm a big fan of long lists of books to read, and as the holidays approach, I think we all need to sit back and read some books. Any reading lists on any topics are welcome on this thread. Old biblos for class, research, anything of the like.
  6. Hi! I’m new in this forum so I hope this is the right section where to post this. Well, to put it “short”, I have a BA in Modern languages (taken in Italy) with a “minor” in art history and would like to pursue my studies in this field, going on to a MA and possibly even a PhD (I don’t know why but it really fascinates me to do any kind of research and maybe even to teach it). The problem is that during my bachelor I only took monographic courses which gave me no general view on art history: I took a 1850-1950 art history module, one about Caravaggio, another one on Flemish art (1350-1650), one on six 20th Century Italian artists and a general module on Aesthetics. Plus, I wrote my dissertation on August Strindberg and his role as a painter. In terms of credits, I would be perfectly admissible for a MA in Europe; yet, as I said before, I don’t have an overview on art history and haven’t done those readings an art history student would do during a bachelor. I feel so ignorant for this. So my final simple question is: given my background, what kind of readings should I do? Do you have any particular books/textbooks I should/must read? I have already started to read “A world history of art” by Hugh Honour, but I’m sure it won’t suffice Thanks a lot for those who will try to help me!
  7. Since I will be out of school until the Fall of 2017, I decided to make my New Year's Resolution to read more frequently. I have always regretted not reading as much of the classics as I would like. I will be studying psychology, so I may want to avoid books on that subject, but I love anything educational and enhancing. If you have a list or recommendations for must-reads, please share them! I'm currently focusing on The Classics according to Good Reads.
  8. "How to direct a play and not lose your mind" This is a must read for theatre director BUT ALSO if you are a stage director who has been rejected from graduate school this book may be for you. Tools to help you build your resume now- without the MFA. With tips like where to find the job, how to interview, get internships and handle problems in your production. A short manual with personal stories and honest help from a working director supported by directing who was rejected. $ 2.99 on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01DHOAA5K?vs=1
  9. Yes, I realize that this is a horribly unoriginal topic, but we need something to spark life into this forum. Plus, I'm always one for good book recommendations. I'm currently reading Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader: North Korea and the Kim Dynasty by Bradley K. Martin. After Kim Jong-Il died, I realized that my knowledge of North Korea was about as much as they potrayed on the 30 Rock episode with Margaret Cho. Since I have an odd fascination with authoritarian dictatorships, I figured it would be the opportune time to read up. I basically googled "best book about the history of North Korea" and came up with this one. While I wouldn't classify this book as the definitive history of North Korea (Martin is a journalist, not a historian), it is keeping me interested. It's 700 some-odd pages and I've still got a ways to go. I also recently finished Double Dexter by Jeff Lindsay. The books are not near as good as the TV show has been. This latest installment of the novels definitely was the worst. It was very anticlimatic and overall just "meh." Now it's time for you to share! What books are you reading? What books do you want to read? For school or for fun? Do you have a Nook/Kindle/other? If you have a GoodReads account and want a friend, PM me! I have one, but am not going post it so those trick adcomms can deny me for my poor taste in books (just kidding, I have amazing taste). Oh, btw, I posted it in the History forum for the purpose of getting all us crazed Historians something else to discuss while we wait. I noticed that the diving thread got moved, so I hope it doesn't happen here!

    Reading List

    I am just posting this out of curiousity and a need for a serious distraction from the admissions waiting game. Anyone else intimidated by art history/art theory? Does anyone else have a list of books they feel that the need to get to at some point? What are you reading or what have you read?
