Brand New Year; Brand New Books!

Hello out there in Internetland! Welcome to Pagegrrl’s Blog!

I decided to start this blog for several reasons. The first reason being that I just finished watching a wonderful movie called Julie and Julia and thought (as probably half a million other people have after watching that movie) that I can write a blog too! I’ve tried blogging before but never really had the drive for it. I would start and stay focused for a while but after a couple weeks get bored or too busy or simply have nothing to say. I mean who wants to read a blog about my boring life?

Then I thought why not have a project like Julia does in the movie? That would keep me on track and I would keep my blog up. This brings me to my second reason for starting this blog.

Before I tell you my second reason you need to know a little bit about me. I’m 23 years old and in my last year of university and I also love to read. Since I’m in my last year I have a lot of reading to do. One day of my 2010 Winter Semester has gone by and I already have a pile of reading to do.

Total number of books for this semester: 19
Total cost of books for this semester: $466.75

So, second reason for starting this blog: I need to keep myself on track with my reading so I’m going to blog about my reading and just write down what I think of it.

List of reading due Tuesday, January 12th, 2010:
The Beast by Myers for ELIB 326
Chapters 1 & 2 of Literature for Young Adults for ELIB 326
Chapters 1 & 2 of Inside Track: Getting Hired to Teach in a Canadian School for EAES 410
Introduction and Hinduism Chapter of Intro to Religious Studies for Religious Studies 100
The Room from The Complete Works of Harold Pinter volume 1 for Theatre 381AE

That’s a lot of reading for this weekend and it’s already Saturday night! I better get at it! First up is The Beast.

Wish me luck, Internetland!
