It’s nice to rejoin the education/reading blogosphere. One of the ways that I’ve been accomplishing a lot of long-winded reading is through the use of Audible at home, at the dorm, and on long drives. I don’t think of books in terms of pages or days to read anymore. Rather, I now think of books in terms of hours and estimated date of completion. I’m also interested in being up-to-date on AP reads and potential ideas for class novels.
The 42nd Parallel by John Dos Passos
As the old saying goes: the more things change, the more things stay the same. What makes The 42nd Parallel by John Dos Passos timeless is through the use of ordinary American characters living at the start of the twentieth century during the time of the Progressive Era. I kinda want to go back in time to this era because I’d love to hop a train and have my life become a real journey, but I also like the idea of sleeping indoors.
