Not too long ago I found out that the seminary that I am currently attending is using my book as one of their required texts for one of their classes. This was a bit surprising, seeing that the book is more devotional and conversational than it is academic in nature, but apparently the class is more of a devotionally-oriented pass/fail class. But nonetheless, I'm honored that they would require that as a text.
But in the future when I have to take that class, it will be a bit awkward for me, I must admit.
Which makes me wonder quite a few things:
If I took the class where it's a required reading should I have to read the book that I authored?
Would I be required to complete to re-read the book, even though I created it?
And what if I have to read it and then write a response paper on it? How might I respond to "the author's thoughts" if they really are my thoughts? (Could I just turn in a copy of the book as my paper?)
If I failed to read the book but I told the professor I did read it, would I be lying?
And if I didn't read the book during the semester should the professor fail me?
I better stop...this is making my brain smoke...
