I've always loved reading, but it wasn't until my senior AP Literature class that I discovered my love for classic literature. As hard as some of the classics are to read, they are incredible. I think literature allows one to get into the dirty areas of human nature and it encourages the reader to dig into heavy topics. Furthermore, it allows the world to step back in time, or experience how literature can withstand time all together.
I'm majoring in Middle School Education - English and I am already catching myself coming up with lesson plans and ideas for how to teach certain works of literature. Don't get me wrong, I don't plan on teaching The Scarlet Letter or Gone with the Wind to 6th graders, but a little Sherlock Holmes, Poe and C.S. Lewis never hurt anyone...right?
Over the last year, I've developed an obsession with antique books. I decided to share what I have collected with all of you. There's still so much on my list (such as the complete collection of the Grimm Fairy Tales which is on its way to my mailbox as we speak), but one can only afford so many books at a time!
