How has another week come and gone? Time seems to keep passing faster and faster and faster. This past week was a stressful, busy week at work. My English 11 students just finished Oedipus the King by Sophocles and are going to be working on projects this coming week. In my AP classes, they have just finished reading Beowulf and will be reading The Canterbury Tales next. When I'm reading language-dense material with my students, I tend to leave work and not want to read as much on my own time.
Thankfully, I have a lot of good books I've picked up at the library and received in the mail. One heavy-duty read I picked up and am eager to flip through is Edith Wharton: A Biography by Hermione Lee. I absolutely loved The Age of Innocence the moment I read it and have been a Wharton fan ever since.
Sadly, I had to renew a bunch of books that I still haven't had a chance to get to. It's always fun to get the new ones though, right? Well, there's my Library Loot, which is a meme hosted by Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader and Claire from The Captive Reader.
I also received a couple of books in the mail this week that I need to review by the first of the year.
There's my week and book pick up in a nutshell. How about you? What are you reading or enjoying today?
