Reading..

Hi guys! Humans say and do such weird things. Mom says she's got a cold - but I can assure you she's really HOT! She's not been all that active lately, but she seems even more lazy than usual, just hanging out under the blanket on the couch with ME. Not that I'm complaining.


She's been reading a lot lately - since finishing "Surfacing" she's read Austen's "Pride and Prejudice", Erica Jong's"Fear of Flying" and Don DeLillo's "White Noise" plus Shakespeare's play "Julius Caesar". Now she's started on Mrs Dalloway. At this rate she should have finished most of the novels for this semester even before it starts! She'll have two lit classes this semester - both British lit and one with American/Canadian lit and parallels with modern Am/Can society so there's plenty to read. BOL!

And - to help her with her reading she got a Kindle for Christmas! It's very convenient since she's always reading huge big books and dragging them around with her everywhere, and she won't have to bring multiple books when we go up by the lake! It's also really good for school because it's so easy to make good notes while reading.

Time to dive back under the blanket!

My mom was sickly too...I guess it's all this cold weather that's making them hot?

Hope everyone feels better soon!

Agree, humans do say weird things. I guess when you have a cold it means you have to read a lot.

Mom wants a Kindle for her birthday or maybe that other one from Barnes and Noble - does your mom really like hers? Smart idea getting those books read so early.
