I suddenly found out that when I get bored, I read the following books for leisure. Since when have I turned into a nerd?
Anyway, the following are all good reads that provoke qualitative thinking:
1. Pelto PJ. (2013). Applied Ethnography: Guidelines for Field Research. California: Left Coast Press Inc.
2. Ladner S. (2014). Practical Ethnography: A Guide to Doing Ethnography in the Private Sector. California: Left Coast Press Inc.
-After reading the entire book, I wonder: Doing an ethnography in the commercial sector, isn't that marketing research?
3. Gubrium A and Harper K. (2013). Participatory Visual and Digital Methods. California: Left Coast Press Inc.
-In my academic training, i.e., health geography and Geographic Information Science (GIS), a few fellow graduate students and now colleagues conducted Photovoice and participatory action (PAR) research. It wasn't until after I read this book that I had a better understanding of what they were doing.
Books currently sitting on my shelf to be read:
4. Clandinin J. (2013). Engaging in Narrative Inquiry. California: Left Coast Press Inc.
5. Chang H. (2008). Autoethnography as Method. California: Left Coast Press Inc.
6. Andrew S and Halcomb EJ. (Eds.) (2009). Mixed Methods Research for Nursing and the Health Sciences. West Sussex, UK: Wiley-Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
