I recently began work as a visiting assistant professor at a new university. I’ve finally settled into my office. My books surround me, and I love the feeling of it.



Here is my favorite section of the shelf. It seems timely.


I like being surrounded by books.

  1. I have shelf envy. How fun to set up a new office and arrange all your books! Congrats on your new job too, that’s the second best thing after the shelf space.

  2. Whoa! Congratulations, Doctor J.

    The bookshelves are really nice looking. Loved the pics, and I see you got some cultural studies texts up there. And your printer! Well that’s all right. I remember finding an old dormitory bedside table that was slated to be thrown away and lugging it to my office for a printer stand. Some things never change! ๐Ÿ™‚

    So what are you teaching?

    1. I’m teaching technical writing to non-English majors and visual rhetoric. Next semester will be more technical writing and some writing with style for English majors. And yes, my own printer! That is a luxury I can get used to. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. “I like being surrounded by books”. I think many of us could confess that, Emily. I, for one, am decidedly guilty of that. So, glad you are feeling at home in the office and I hope all goes well for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Congratulation!!! I like your position.
    Hello,๐Ÿ™‚ I am also new blogger, thank you so much for the valuable tips.
    Iโ€™m thinking to review about all products, mainly I write about language, daily, family, travel.
    If you could come and check out my blog and leave comment to advise me
    Thank you!
