I hope you all know what today is………it’s reading day!
If you are just reading this blog for the first time, this isn’t something that is a usual occurrence. Usually, I vent eloquently about oatmeal, hummus and salmon and leave it at that. However, last month I was reminiscing about all the good times spent in my senior year English Literature class and realized that there might be a few other crazy obsessed readers like myself out there as well, who also need a support group for their reading addiction. Thus, the ELR Book Nerd Club was born.
I gave a short list of my picks for a revised summer reading list and asked anyone who wanted to read along then discuss to join on in. Us English majors need fellowship, right? Since this is the very first time I’m doing this I don’t know what I’m doing (do I ever?) but I thought I would post a few questions here and anyone who wanted to join in and discuss in the comment section could. IT’S GOING TO BE FUN!!! Gold stars for all!!!
So here we go:
1. Do you think My Antonia is a book about Antonia? Who do you think the book is really about?
2. How do you think hardships change a person? For example, Antonia changed dramatically after her father died….what are, if any, the differences between how hardship changed a person then versus present day?
I’m hesitant to ask more than two questions because things could get crazy and confusing. Thoughts?
Today is my first day of work (training) so I’ll be gone all day. Just woke up at 5:30 and headed to the gym for another Summer Shape Up workout and I’m about to make some breakfast, shower and hit the road.
