Where my books go, W. B. Yeats
2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s beloved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
“You couldn’t accuse Willie Wonka of being reasonable: in a world of children who’ve grown up too fast, he’s an adult who has somehow managed to hang on to his childishness. He’s the opposite of what you’ve been taught to expect from a mentor: where other writer supply their child heroes with grown-ups who teach them how to become grown-ups themselves, Willia Wonka is there to remind Charlie not to grow up too far or too fast.”
Haven’t written a good post in awhile. I’ve been super busy juggling two jobs and trying to take advantage of the last bit of summer before it starts to get cold and wintry in Alaska (it’s only August, but it won’t be long!). I finished reading World War Z (which I quite enjoyed, by the way), but I haven’t had the motivation to really start a new book yet.
Starting in September, I am also going to begin teaching English and Spanish classes to home school students for the tutoring company I work for. I did a bit of this in college, but it’s been about 4 years since I did it last, so it will be interesting to start teaching again. I’m still going to be working two jobs in the fall, but hopefully I will still find the time to put some effort in here.
JANE EYRE by Charlotte Brönte.
This is great. All of the three-panel book reviews are pretty brilliant.
I like my ereader, too, though…
The only books we have are ones that were banned by other schools.
