Of course I have to have more than one book going at once. Still working on the history book, have been neglecting the book about the Copernican Revolution (but will get back to it when my current history read is done) but right now I'm also really enjoying reading Jane Eyre.
Why, why, why???? did no one force me to read this wonderful book before now? I love the style in which it is written. I also like the slight creepy/gothic factors on the plot line. I'll admit that what got me started on it was the fact that Wes and I have been watching the BBC miniseries over Netflix streaming at night (finished it last night), and that got me wanting to read the book.
I think the next novel I will seek out will be Middlemarch. And then I think I might give House of the Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne a go. Who knows? Of course, one of my students is going to be reading The Scarlet Letter this year, and I was never forced to read that in High School, either, so I'd best get that one read as well. Probably sooner, rather than later.
Oh, it's late, I'm tired, need to go exercise and have NOT A CLUE what I should make for supper. Sandwiches, anyone?
