What I’m Reading

I’m really proud of myself for reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.  I’m about a third of the way through, and I’m enjoying the journey.  I spent two years in college as an English major and I wasn’t able to read Shakespeare, Chaucer, or Joyce without getting stuck at the bottom of the first page.  All the words would just jumble up in a big pile in my head and I’d have to start over.  More often I’d just give up.  I’ve never been able to get through real literature because of that.  With a fresh mind and some new strategies, I’m re-visiting the classics – one by one and slowly.

I’m also reading Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.
