Six books are available from the Penn Book Center, but some of the readings and other course materials are available only on-line on the English Web. To reach the Web from mail.sas, choose lynx from the menu, press lowercase g (for "Go to"), type
http://www.english.upenn.eduand press Enter. Choose "Courses," then "Course Home Pages," then English 3. If you have computer trouble, send a message to
firstname.lastname@example.org you'll receive a response within a day.
Though I have the greatest sympathy for those suffering from technological nightmares, don't expect to use computer problems as an excuse for not doing the reading or writing. If you have a computer problem, contact either english-help@english or me as soon as possible.
