War Year

I finished reading "War Year" by John Haldeman in one day. It's a short novella about a tour of duty with a combat engineer. I read this book for the first time in 1985. Went through a lot of trouble to secure a copy online for which I paid .50 cents. I was just curious to read it again after 20 years.

I am currently reading "Lady Chatterley's Lover" by D.H. Lawrence. I've always been interested in reading this book, with that controversy and all, but since reading "Women in Love" I couldn't believe Lawrence could write a better book. We'll find out. I'll report my findings in the coming week.

School begins tomorrow again after Christmas break. I won't have as much time to read like I did over break but since I am now including teaching in my blog I may have new stories to tell about how 29 teenage girls take to Victorian and Modern British literature.

Hi JCR,
I associated you so much with words & books that I forgot you were a teacher.
Of course, classroom stories should be fun.
And I look forward too, to reading your thoughts on Lady Chatterley's lover.
Have a good teaching week.
