Summer Reading

Teachers begin personal summer reading lists about now. I was looking at book reviews I did many years ago. I was astonished at some of the book titles and comments. Amazingly It still stands up.

On an English teacher Talkie list, the teachers have compiled a list on a wiki, that allows all members to enter lists, edit them, and add reviews or comments.

After getting through Joyce's Ulysses recently I've decided I want to take on Yeats, especially his sonnets. I want read more PD James, I love her writing, Lawrence Block, especially the Keller Hit Man series, which is superb. I have three Virginia Woolf novels ready and waiting. Perhaps this summer. And I may delve into the Booker list and dive into The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms.
