An Ambitious Goal

So, I made a decision.  I am not going to take any classes between now and the fall and enjoy a short summer break.  We have friends in town for the summer, family visiting, and lots of other things going on that could possibly become stressful with class time and homework in the mix.  But what will I do with all of this new free time?!

It's pretty ambitious, but I want to read three books over my seven week break.  I haven't read for enjoyment in a long time and I am really looking forward to it.  I put a whopping four books on hold at the library and will start this endeavor as soon as I'm done with school this week.

I wanted to read a classic, or a modern piece of literature, or something a little more fun.  I think this is why I was so eager while putting books on hold.  Somehow, if I'm able to read all four, I would be so excited and proud.  But I guess if you don't hear about it in seven weeks, it didn't happen.

Anyway, here are the books I'm hoping to read.

Well, here's hoping the extra time I'm going to have soon will be used for my long lost hobby. 


  1. I highly recommend A Wrinkle In Time...Ive read it it least a half a dozen times. The Great Gatsby is also a very good read. I cannot attest to the goodness of the other two, however. Good Luck!!
