Read this book!

This summer, my reading list includes old classics that I read as a kid but haven’t revisited in a long time.  It’s interesting what happens when you read books that you once loved as a teenager after you become an adult.  Perspective and understanding changes, and you begin to see the book in a whole new way.

The first book on the list was To Kill a Mockingbird.  And since not one but two of my high school English teachers are Facebook friends – and, therefore, possibly reading my blog – let me assure Mrs. Pyle and Mr. Hays that I did read this book when it was assigned.  (Sorry, not sure whose class we read it in.  I’m guessing Mrs. Pyle’s freshman English, but that was a looooooong time ago.)

Did you know this is the 50th anniversary of Harper Lee’s classic?  As a result, it was on sale at B&N so I picked it up.  I could NOT put it down and devoured it in two days.  I’d forgotten what a great story it is.

If anyone would like to borrow it, I’d be happy to loan it out!

Next on the list: Little Women.

    This is one of my favorite books too. (but I didn’t read it in high school for some reason?) Mr. Hays still teaches it and I teach it in my special ed English class.
