My Mother-In-Law says that I choose such heavy books to read, but coming from an English Literature background I feel obligated to get those important books into my repertoire. This year I have read, Jane Eyre, Sense and Sensibility, The Bell Jar, I Know This Much Is True, and for some easy reading The Carrie Diaries. After about a month off, I have decided to tackle a book on my radar for years.
I have only gotten through the prelude and first chapter but know already that it is going to be an amazing read! People have told me that my life will be changed by this read. I am not sure how true that is but I know that I am yearning to learn more about this man who made such a large mark on the history of our country.
