What are you reading? 

In 2021 I went through Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book again. Plus C.S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy, which I have read once a decade since I was ten.

I started 2022 with Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. And discovered the author published Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style, a text I used to teach English at Jordan College!

In February, I read A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L’Engle. New to me. Great fun.

This summer I wanted to learn how Agatha Christie began her novels. Good grief. I read two stem to stern. Body in the Library and Murder at the Vicarage.

The Guttenberg app on my phone showed me several famous stories. I hoped to learn how the masters wrote.

This fall (2022) I’ve been reading more heavy-duty books:

I asked our local library for a novel by Colleen Hoover, so I could learn from a farmer whose romances outsell the Bible. Every large print copy was out on loan. When they finally got one in, I read the first chapter and a half. Skilled writer, but the content is not for me, sorry.
