18. Read or re-read 5 of "the classics."
Even more interestingly, I think this book is saving my life. Ha! While that sounds dramatic, I can really attest that reading a chapter or two each night before bed instead of zoning out in front of the TV is fantastic. I used to do this all the time when I was younger, but at some point in time replaced it with a nasty late night TV habit. I usually can never justify reading something that's not for school or work, so I'm really glad I added this to my list, so I have a REASON for reading. Reading before bed has greatly increased my quality of life. Especially when work is insane (a co-worker is resigning and I'm essentially taking over a good chunk of her work) and the school semester is in full swing. Oh, and not to mention I'm going to Connecticut this weekend and have guests in town next weekend.
Life is busy, but very very full.
I'll quit my rambling. I'm very excited to be revisiting this old tale, To Kill A Mockingbird (and I KNOW the title should be underlined, I just don't have the option to underline text, so there!) It's probably been 15 years since I last read Harper Lee's classic, but I can admit that it's much more of a page turner now at 29 than it was the last time I read it. Interesting what a decade and a half can do for perspective!
I'm about 5 chapters in. I'll let you know when I'm finished and "what I've learned." :) I also know one little Southern peach friend of mine who will be very excited about my numero uno book choice!
PS - I'm open to suggestions for the other 4 books I should add to my reading list!!!
