I'd like to write on a more consistent basis this summer, so I decided on two projects that would help me achieve this...
Summer of Books - I've been requesting books and putting others on a list at the public library at a pretty fair clip the last week or so. This is in addition to the books I've already downloaded to my Nook and not yet read and the couple books on my shelves I've not cracked open. Not too mention all the other books that haven't reached those levels yet. I just want to read as much as I can this summer. You might think that after a year of full-on English classes I'd want a break but you'd be wrong. I'm going to write about these books after I read them and I'm going to do some posts talking about the books I've read so far this year. My eyes are definitely bigger than my stomach but I'm going to gorge.
My Canon - When you're a English major, you often deal with the idea of a canon in literature. These are the books that everyone (read English majors) should read and be conversant with. Naturally, the nature of this canon is endlessly debated, with authors falling in and out of favor. I've decided to start building my own canon, filled with pop culture goodies that I consider important and that I'd recommend to anyone. I look forward to sharing my love for these works with you.
I'm not limiting myself to these two categories, of course. I hope I can use them as a starting point and make my blog into what I always envisioned it could be. We'll see how that goes. In the meantime, I hope you stop by now and again to check out what I'm doing.
