“What are you reading now and why are you reading it?”

Well now that is a great question.  I just finished Matched last night, I could not put it down.  I read it because I had heard such wonderful things about it.  I will be starting something new today just not sure what it will be yet.  I also just finished listening to Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz this morning.  And on my Nook I am reading, Scandal Sheet by Gemma Halliday as a quick fun romantic read.

What is the book you are currently ‘pushing’? (Pushing mean trying to get people to read it)

I am always pushing the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. There are amazing books that I want everyone to experience!

I am paraphrasing from a friend’s Facebook wall her question:
“How would a teen-age boy who is going to work with his hands ever use Literature of England in his work?”
The age-old “How am I going to use this in real life?” question. How would you answer it?
This is a very interesting question.  I don’t think that I agree that his work is only going to be using his hands. While yes, his main source of income might be from working with his hands, there is much work to his work in life.  We are spouses, friends, parents, mentors and so much more.  We use everything we learn no matter how small in some form in our life.  It might be remembering a line of Literature or Poetry at a time that is helpful for a friend in a time of need. Or to help our children as they are learning the same things we did.  I guess my bottom line is that out “work” is much more than our “job”.
