For this first post, briefly introduce yourself (major, career plans, dog's name, and so on) and name your favorite work of literature. If you don't have a favorite work, describe the quality (or qualities) you like your literature to possess.
I'll get you started . . . My name is Matthew Woodman, and I've been teaching at CSUB for eleven years. For fun, I like photography and painting, and when I'm not entertaining my two-year-old son, I'm trying to teach myself how to play the guitar (so far, it's not going well). I have many favorite works of literature, but if I were to recommend one piece, it would be Orhan Pamuk's The New Life. It's a great novel about traveling and finding/losing oneself. While I'm at it, I'd also recommend Pablo Neruda's collection of poetry titled The Book of Questions; here's one such question: "Where is the child I was, / still inside me or gone?"
