expanding my horizons
My summer reading stack has dwindled... and I'm down to one. And it's a big one. I have laughed and giggled and gasped and cried my way through fiction fluff- and loved every second of it. And now... I have no excuses. Becky gave me a book to read... one that she was shocked I had never read, or even seen the movie of! Gone With The Wind. The thickness of the book does not bother me... I don't think. I'm not really sure what has been stopping me though. It's more than just my typical fiction fluff... my easy reading, that I know for sure. Is it a classic? I do not know any of the classic old movies... I just don't think I was ever exposed to them... and I suppose I just have pushed all thoughts of them aside. I have plenty of other things I should be doing anyway, right? But lately, I have been wanting to go back and read some of the books I read in high school... or books that I should have read, and just skimmed through to finish. Maybe I will... after I tackle this one. I started it yesterday, and I think I might just like it!
