Today marked my last day working for the parks department. It is kind of bittersweet that I won't be there this winter, and if things go well, I might not be back next summer either.
This also marks the beginning of a crazy month. I am participating in NaNoWriMo, planning for my long term sub job, and moving into a new apartment. This past week has made me extremely glad that I am taking a break from my heavy classics and reading some great books from my childhood.
I finished A Tree Grows in Brooklyn late Sunday night and was reminded why I loved the book so much when I was younger. Since then I have been reading through the Narnia series by C.S. Lewis. I am in the middle of the fifth book (of seven), The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and I am really enjoying these rereads. I have only read the series twice before, so it is a great reminder, especially with another movie coming out in December.
This week I am planning on finishing Narnia and reading some of the Lowry titles on my list: The Giver, Gathering Blue, and Messenger. I'm not sure what else I'll grab off the shelf, but I know I'll have a bit more time this week to read. :)
Happy Reading Everyone!
