Due to my husband's current unemployment status, I decided to take another part time teaching job. This University Model School meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays, which fit my schedule nicely. Also, this is a start-up school, so while I have added 3 classes to my roster, I only have a total of 8 students -- so grading should be kept at a manageable level. It is, however, the literature classes that I teach that have kept me beyond busy. For example, here is the list of books that I must read by next Tuesday/Wednesday:
- Pride and Prejudice - Volume I chapters 17-23
- Lion, Witch and Wardrobe - chapters 5-13
- The Hobbit - chapter 1
- To Kill a Mockingbird - chapters 5-8
- Walk Two Moons - chapters 1-8
- Old Man and the Sea - first 25 pages
Anyway, this required reading is definitely keeping me from making any dent in my TBR pile - but I keep telling myself that it is only for a finite period of time. In the meantime, I will try to post when I can - read your wonderful entries when I can - and be grateful that I have a job that I love which allows me to read and re-read wonderful classics.
