For some reason, every professor hands out assignments as though theirs is the only course you’re taking. I think students in history and language arts have it the worst. Every history course I took had at least three novels I had to read. Once I got to grad school, I had several seminars that required me to read a novel and analyze it in a paper each week. Terrible!

A reader told me about these tiny novels available from Miniature Bookshelf. I got a few of them, and they are amazing! Not only are the covers of my favorite books lovingly reproduced, but each page has text! The text is different on every page, so you can make out the chapters and paragraphs. I am hooked. I hope to have enough to fill a mini bookcase!

*squints* I can make out A Manual For Writers but I can't figure the others out! What are your favorites? :)

Alice in Wonderland & Fahrenheit 451. Can't make out the middle one--probably because I haven't read it. :(

colormist is right. The books are Turabian's Manual for Writers, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Fahrenheit 451, a dictionary, and Hale's The History of the Common Law in England. That last one is hands-down the dullest book I have ever read.

Ah yes, grad school...thanks for the not-so-pleasant memories of reading/writing about/talking about three 350-page books per week for my M.A. in applied history. O_o Good luck, Kimono!

When I went to Uni,I chose two units because I'd already read the books on it,saved a lot of time.And I love the books,I collect tiny books myself.

Tiny books mean just that much more room on my bookshelf for MORE BOOKS!!! I probably should stay away...

I can read the Manuel for Writers, Alice in Wonderland, and Fahrenheit 451, but what's the middle one?

And, seriously. Pony-sized books. Did you make these?

The middle one is The History of the Common Law of England by Matthew Hale. Fahrenheit and Alice were made by Miniature Bookshelf, which I linked to. The dictionary is a pre-made miniature, and the rest were made by me.

Gah, yes! And should any student bring up the fact that half the class already has a huge book to read/analysis to write/whatever for another course, the professor's oh-so-sympathetic response is always, "I don't care. My class is more important." My attention span is still fried from all that crammed skimming, and I graduated in 2002. -_-

The miniature books are too cute! ^_^

I used to love reading, but grad school pretty much cured me of that. I've only started reading again in the last year or two.

I think everyone does.

There's also a Church of Turabia group on Facebook. ;)

How did you make the kimono doll lie down? I didn't think the legs move, did you mutilate a My Little Pony? lololol

Isn't that the truth. I'm an Ancient Civilizations minor and when I got to upperlevel history courses there was a lot more reading. My major thankfully is in Radio and Audio Production and I'm pursuing my Masters in Producing next year hopefully. The problem with creative degree fields though is that you have much fewer assignments but they're worth a lot more and can sometimes become quite time consuming. I have one project due this semester for 3D Animation, that's it just one and it's worth the entire grade for the whole class. Still I'm much happier doing that then dealing with thousands of hours of reading and memorization. :P
