Thursday, August 13, 2009 And American Literature

Today, when I was looking for something to listen to while I was working, I went to my tried and true, which I've previously mentioned. 

I've been listening to a lot of Mark Twain lately there and when I went to find something new of his to listen to, I discovered that I could find not one, not two but six of the books on the How Well Read Are You-American Literature Edition list that I posted the other day. So if you're looking for an easy way to knock a few of those pesky classics off the list, head on over there. 

I'm quite enjoying Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin." I had no idea the old gal was such a wit. And I knew that the book was something of a treatise against slavery, but this is biting social commentary at it's best.


  1. Sounds great - I may have to check that out!

  2. Now I'm curious...what do you do that you get to listen to books while you work?? I'm feeling envious. I'm neck-deep in editing my novel and don't even have the energy to READ! Makes it kind of hard to be part of a reading community!

  3. The apartment was great - so great that we got it! We filled out the application and already paid the security deposit - we move in on October 1st!!!!
