    I Want To Read The Great Works In Liturature

    I've never been much for reading. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like to read. It's just never been my favorite thing to do. My English professor teachings awakened something inside me. And I realized I want to read the works of authors like Alice Walker, Hemingway, Poe(who I have...

    Newer Novels

    Mansfield Park

    I am currently reading Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. It's the first Austen book I have ever read. I do like it but in the sense that it evokes emotion. Though those emotions are mostly negative. I honestly want to hit Mrs. Norris. Fanny is a prude.  I do like William &...

    Leo Tolstoy

    Virgil's "Aeneid"

    The translation by C.Day Lewis (who happens to have been actor Daniel Day Lewis's father) is absolutely stunning.

    Not Sure Where to Start

    I had to read few in school, but now I am interested in trying some.  I just am unsure of where to start. I prefer reading non-fiction, but I think if I tried some classics, I could at least say I've read them, right?  All I had to read in school was: Great...
