Last year there was a linky party called 11 in 2011. One of the 11 topics was goals for 2012. My goal had to do with reading (although a friend told me my goal should have to with joining the online dating world:-) Anyway I am an avid reader....of mostly kids books and young adult fiction. Classic literature is a genre I kind of avoid. So this year I read Persuasion, but Jane Austin. Goal met:-) I should probably read some more classic literature, but everyone needs a starting point. Here is my review of 2012 reading
Donalyn Miller is my hero when it comes to reading and inspiring other readers. She is part of the Nerdy Book Club...another of my favorite book blogs. Her recent post is about Minding the Book Gap. In addition to avoiding classic literature, I also avoid non-fiction...all non-fiction. To bridge my current gap, here are some books heading to the top of my stack:
The Great Gatsby
The End of Your Life Book Club
I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had
Happily taking other classic lit or non-fiction suggestions.
