Back From Hiatus

23 05 2009

So I realize that it has been a great many months since posting. In that time however I was reading many unexciting things about psychology and the English language as it pertains to ‘college writing’. I went back to college after a great many years in hopes of getting in to nursing school. I’m happy to say I’ve come out of this first semester with a 4.0 GPA (for the first time in my entire life) and a whole lot of nothing done other than school work.

In the few weeks since finals however, I have taken it upon myself to try to tackle the ‘1001 Books to Read Before you Die‘. True, I’ve already read a few of these books. I can already tell there are a few that I will not read as well. I have no desire to read “Mein Kampf” or some of the books by the Russian guys that are so dry as to make my brain shrivel into a zombified nothing. I will, however, at least read a synopses of each book and give them all a shot. I’m also adding to the list with books I’d like to read, am reading, or have read; and adding in elements of the list from a book I found at Borders with about 500 or so titles in it.

I’ve managed to make a small chip into the list the past week or so. It would have been a bigger chip if I had not been sidetracked by some ‘chick lit‘ and my re-read of the Twilight Saga. I’ll be posting a few blogs soon to document my progress and inform of a few good reads for any readers that I have.
