Week One. Day One.
This is a blog for literature lovers and students of the written word. The goal of this project is to read one (or more if I get on a roll) literature book per week for six months. I'll read the book over the course of the week and write a brief summary, then an in depth review/critique of the book. One goal is to discover what makes a book a classic. Why are some books read over and over in literature classes and others never read at all? I plan on reading and reviewing both well known books and ones that are not read as often. The first book is The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. Almost every junior high school student in America has to read this book. Why is it considered a classic? We'll find out.
