Readings for the Program

Possible Course Readings (Public Amazon Wishlist)
Note that not all of the books listed here are required for all courses.

All the readings for the courses (except for Chinese) will be available in Amazon Kindle format. You do not have to own a Kindle to buy and read Kindle books; instead, you can download the kindle software for your computer (Windows or Mac) and read them on your computer.

I would recommend buying a Kindle for your own sanity – you do not get eyestrain by reading using a Kindle, since it uses e-ink (and is not an illuminated screen like your computer). You will need a light source to read on the Kindle, like reading regular printed books. Please see Fuji if you are interested in exploring options other than buying a Kindle.

Tip: Getting over jetlag


Here’s a good graphic to help you manage your jetlag; China is exactly opposite to U.S. Eastern Daylight Savings Time (if it’s 8 pm at Davidson, it’s 8 am in Shanghai).

Yumi Sakugawa has an informative graphic providing tips on how to deal with jet lag. In the end, I think his tip “fake it ’til you make it” is the time-tested way to handle jet-lag. But give these tips a try!
