My first book is Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. This book was assigned in Mr. Zetterberg's freshman English class in 1984. I remember bringing the book home and thumbing through it, but I never read it. I even remember the names of the characters from quizzes we took in class. I don't know how I blew off a book with a character as intriguing as Miss Haversham. I hope to return in a week or so with a review of the novel and to reveal the next book on my list.

Happy New Year. It is time to make goals and resolutions. I decided that it is time to catch up on the classics. As a homeschool mom, who uses the classical model, it would be advantageous for me partake of these volumes.
