I bought books for Womens' Studies for spring quarter and then dropped the class. . . I bought used books so I can't return them to the bookstore, correct? If anyone's interested:

When I Was Puerto Rican by Santiago - $5
Our Bodies Ourselves - $15

What have been people's experiences with taking language classes in the summer?  I'm debating taking Japanese this summer.  I don't need it for a requirement, per se, but I've got a research project that would be a bit easier, if I had a grasp of the language.  I'm not adverse to work, and I took Latin last summer and had a blast.  I'll probably take it pass/no credit, so I don't care about getting an easy 4.0.  For those who've taken langauges this way, was it worth it?  And how insane was the workload?  I don't mind putting effort in, but I have no tolerance for bullshit busywork since passing my comps.
