I think I underestimated the amount of work that I would have for my classes this semester. It's not completely unmanageable, but on top of College Prep & Sweet Lemon (and not to mention those trips to NYC), I'm not spending as much time reading.
Well, correction... I read a LOT.... but it's mostly boring textbooks and HBS cases.
I've worked my way through four books this year, which is definitely behind my book-per-week goal, but that is okay. I'm getting my schoolwork done, which right now is the most important thing.
The Sun Also Rises
I chose this book while in the library because I remember so not enjoying having to read Hemingway in high school. I really actually hated any required reading during high school. (Except for The Count of Monte Cristo, but technically I first read it in middle school.)
I picked it up because it's not something I would normally read for "pleasure," and I wanted to see if I really shouldn't have rebelled against high school English teachers.
(Surprise, I ended up breezing through it!)
