Syllabus planning is a fun part of the job -- why do I forget that? At least it is fun in the generating stage -- it is less fun when you are ruthlessly scything texts out of your original glorious plan because you know if you overload them with fabulosity, the students will just stop reading. I tell myself that that is what 'optional reading' is for, and at least one or two of them might actually look at those suggestions.
There will also be lots of shorter works, but I was behind on getting in my textbook orders (way behind, argh), so at least that is done, and my apologies, students. On the plus side, you should still have plenty of time to get cheap used copies online, esp. since we're not using any of the actual books for the first two weeks or so of classes.
