From the Instructor:
This course of Reading 115 is offered online (note: textbooks are different than those used in other Reading 115 courses offered online.) We will be reading an Irish classic, a novel called The Poor Mouth: A Bad Story about the Hard Life, by Flann O'Brien. The book store will have it, but you can also order it online from Amazon or other sources ($10.95 is an average price.) We also will be reading other materials in your Mercury Reader and Online. You should purchase your Mercury Reader asap, as the bookstore sometimes has trouble keeping it in stock. Be sure it has my name, Nancy Jarrell, on it, and CRN 23057. It should be at Cascade Campus, and possibly at Sylvania. Call the Bookstore first. You should also be able to order it sent to you via an online order (call Sylvania Bookstore for directions anyway!)
