I’ve got some fantastic books and short stories to read this week. Most of them are for my Open University degree in English Literature.
Exams and final assessments are happening within the next seven weeks, so there will be lots of books to revise and re-read. I’m not quite there yet, so need to have this week focusing on the final part of the module. This will involve reading Kate Chopin’s The Awakening, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and re-reading Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, which I studied years ago when I was at university the first time round.
Away from the nineteenth-century novel module, I will be reading a collection of short stories from the Bridport Prize, 2002. I’m hoping to read at least one a day, just as a break from the heavy reading and revising of my course.
I’ve got a huge pile of books I want to read, but can’t start yet until my university reading is out of the way. Needless to say, I’m getting ready for finishing the module. I’m pleased we’re down to the final few weeks.
What’s on your reading pile this week?
