Reminiscing about Books
I was adding a few titles to my reading journal and decided to take a peak at what I was reading ten years ago. It turned out to be a Jane Austen knockoff called The Third Sister by Julia Barrett. (I have since given up all books that try to sound like Austen, but which invariably fail.)
Peeking back a little further, I saw that twenty years ago this month I was reading poetry and books about homeschooling. And 25 years ago I was devouring all of Michael Phillips re-workings of George MacDonald's romances. I was also reading my first Elizabeth Goudge book, The Scent of Water.
It's fun to think that I've read hundreds of books since then and have discovered many wonderful new authors.
Anybody else keep a reading log? What were you reading a decade ago?
