I'm always blown away when the 15th rolls around... this past month has absolutely flown by! I almost didn't believe that it was time for another book club selection here.
I haven't had as much time to read as I'd like. At school it was much easier, because I'd read every morning during breakfast and during dinner. But I've been trying to schedule/find time to get a few pages of reading in every day. I finally made it to the library here which is going to be a good motivator to get back into the habit of reading. (I really think libraries are the best things ever.... FREE BOOKS!!!!)
Every time I was ready to go to the library, I would either get distracted or it would be closed or I didn't have access to a car to driver over.
This got me pretty desperate to find a book to read... I ended up perusing my own mini-library. (Which mostly consists of some of my favorite books and many, many, many "required reading" books from high school.) I found an old copy of Pride and Prejudice and decided to read it since I haven't read it in forever... Sophomore year of high school was a long time ago...
I must say, I really enjoyed it a lot more than I did as a sophomore. Memorizing motifs, character names, and vocabulary really ruins the enjoyment of books. I never liked reading in high school because I was way too concerned with how I could use the novels in AP Literature essay questions rather than simply reading (and enjoying) books.
When was the last time you picked up Pride and Prejudice?
PS Don't forget, you can read along with me by friending me on Goodreads!
