Their Eyes Were Watching God – Zora Neale Hurston

“Ships at a distance have every man’s wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his eyes away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death by Time. That is the life of men.” (pg.1)… Continue reading Their Eyes Were Watching God – Zora Neale Hurston

Classic Club Spin #15

Hey Readers, I’m pumped that I finally get to participate in a Spin challenge! I haven’t in the past because I usually know what Classic I want to read for that month.

The Glass Menagerie – Tennessee Williams

I love going to see musicals and plays, but I shy away from actually reading them in book format. There’s about a 50/50 shot that the play will translate well in script format, and even then the reader likely misses something when not seeing a play live. I’m not suggesting to skip reading plays.

Literary Travels: Folger Shakespeare Library -“Will & Jane” Exhibit

Everyone has a set of hobbies that they love to participate in, and each one brings some level of joy to the person’s life. On this blog, I mainly focus on my love for reading (and writing), but I’m hoping in the future to write about other loves in my life and linking them back… Continue reading Literary Travels: Folger Shakespeare Library -“Will & Jane” Exhibit

September Happenings and Wrap Up

Wrap Up This is the most I’ve ever read in my life. I’m excited that Bout of Books was a success, but boy was it intense (sickness didn’t help). I’ll pass on January, but I do plan on participating in May. Hopefully I’ll make it to four books in May! A lot of solid reads… Continue reading September Happenings and Wrap Up
