My Blog's Birthday & a Guest Post

Lucky for me, I planned a day off to get my taxes in order and got a nasty head cold. Is this coincidence? I think not. It also stopped me in my tracks from posting anything for my blog's third birthday!

What began as a nice place to join up and discuss literature that I needed to study in preparation for graduate exams, turned into a wonderful hobby that has really been a pleasant surprise in my life. Besides the wonderful books that blogs have lead me to, I've gone on to meet some amazing, kind, and generous bloggers who I've come to call my friends, and some really cool authors. Thank you to each and every one of you! In a lot of ways, meeting up in this environment to discuss books, has made me a better, more connected teacher in the classroom. So again, thank you!

One last thing before I leave this little "update" post, I wanted to direct your attention to my good friend Tasha over at "Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Books." Tasha is a dedicated reader, and is trying a Classics Challenge that has her reading classics this month. As part of her focus on classics, she asked me to write a guest post, which was posted this past Sunday. Stop by to see my post on "Suggestions for Reading Classics." I honestly don't claim to be some aficionado, but have read a few classics and really enjoyed writing this post. Check out my ideas on how to get through a classic, let us know if you have any tricks of your own, and don't forget to check out Tasha's other great posts this month!
