Former Students only...

Attention my former students, especially those of the last years..

Dr. Parrott just sent me this link:

Newsweek's 100 books --


Yeah, four out of six of the assigned books from American Literature, taught by me -- made the top 100.

*does a little rumba*

Dang. I knew I was good.

And this is Newsweek -- just imagine if it was a real magazine.


I'm kidding.



  1. Hey Gillham, I don't know what your email address is. I texted you. I thought that would probably work to contact you, but then I remembered the last time I looked at my grandma's phone; she had about 50 unread texts. Not that your like my grandma or anything. I was just proving that in Anna's world, people do exist that don't answer texts, and it's possible that you're one of them. So what's your email?

  2. I stopped reading when Twilight wasn't in the top 10.

  3. lmao @ newsweek comment. that was the only downside to mrs. wingate's current events class is that we got a subscription to that. can a brother get a the nation up in the house?

    I disagree with the american dream (O_o). Twilight would be a disgrace on the top 10. Now, the sequel, New Moon, on the other hand...

  4. I thought you would appreciate this. My mom works in a library, and students frequently ask her for the book "How to kill a mockingbird."

  5. Out of those 100 books, I've only read 13 of them:
    The Iliad and The Odyssey
    Pride and Prejudice
    Gulliver's Travels
    The Great Gatsby
    The Lord of the Rings
    The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
    To Kill a Mockingbird
    The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
    As I Lay Dying
    Charlotte's Web
    His Dark Materials
    The Wind in the Willows

    The list is giving me great ideas for the next books I might want to read, like War and Peace.

  6. I had you for Newspaper and the only thing I read in 1986-87 to learn how to be a good journalist was "The Best of Penthouse Forum".

    At UGA, I took English Lit which consisted of "To open, pull tab".

    I didn't know you taught English classes.
