Mary's Books

I have loved to read since I was little. I would borrow many books from the library and still borrow to this day, but I also purchase books (mostly for my kids) and freebies on Kindle. I read as much as I can daily. Sometimes I read several books at one time. I don't have a preference of paper book over an ebook, I just love to read. Keeping lists of what I have read is a good way for me to remember.

Why Did I Choose This for the Start?

The Red Badge of Courage - Stephen Crane

I decided that the girls were going to study Civil War for History and to double dip with Literature that covers the topic, too. This is an iconic classic of the Civil War. I remember reading it many years ago. I flew through it, too, not noting some of the things that I saw when I was reading this time. Age over youth caused me to slow down and read when I didn't have people trying to get my attention (you know, someone talking to you while you read). It took some time, I took notes and I know that when we start back on Tuesday, we will have an interesting discussion of the novel.
