Busy Little Bookworm

Interestingly, my relationship with books has changed somewhat significantly since I started this blog almost a year ago. In a way, books used to be a larger part of my life- instead of going places and experiencing things, I would read about it.
For many reasons, I think this change is a good thing. I'm finally striking a balance between living life and reading life. I've also found that when I'm out living, I become a very slow reader.
As strange (and increasingly reflective) as this blogging project has become, I'd like to thank all my followers and semi-regular readers for sticking around and even commenting sometimes. Now that the summer is over, here is what you have to look forward to for September:

-My review of Sons and Lovers by D.H. Lawrence (I swear Traxy, I just started it today!)
-My review of Mansfield Park for the Everything Austen II Challenge
-Anecdotes and rants from my foray into being an editor on a college paper and being the president of the campus literary society.
-Banned Books Week!
-Possibly some more lessons learned on the archery range (hopefully not painful ones)

I'm not going to be too ambitious, my work, class, and extracurricular schedule is ambitious enough this fall, but I like working my writing muscles a little here and hopefully entertaining anyone that stops by.

  1. It will be interesting to see what you think of Sons & Lovers. :) Haven't read it, but got it the other week. I'm reading a collection of DH Lawrence short stories at the moment, as I was struggling to get into Women in Love. Too much Brontë the past six months, so it was a stark contrast, but not quite stark enough, so it was a bit confusing to start with. Think I'm finally starting to build up steam now, though! Really looking forward to the rest of my reading list. :)
