The Beginning

So, this is my last post as a sane human being (if it could ever be said I was sane). I will be undertaking my 176 book journey after midterms next week starting with THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS by Booth Tarkington.  In case you couldn’t tell I will be putting book titles in caps, since they are quite obviously the only important part of this undertaking.

I will not be talking about the author, other than their name, unless there is some direct correlation in the book such as it being semi-autobiographal.  The reason for this is that the books should speak for themselves.  No one should ever have to know about the author to understand the book (however I do believe that the author’s background is important, just not necessary, and why include unnecessary information?).

My own rules that I have set up for myself are all somewhere within my about page, and my first post.

Other than my posts on the books, I will write random updates on my reading, especially the long ones (I’m especially dreading GONE WITH THE WIND, because I saw the movie, and I detest Scarlett O’Hara, and it’s excruciatingly long).  I may post random personal posts sometimes, like my overflowing joy when summer comes, or some college stuff next year when I’m a senior.  Between Books, Updates, and Personal expect 2 or 3 posts a week.

I’ll see you when the insanity of midterms end, and the insanity of this journey begins.
