Rebecca at Lost in Books hosts The Book List. Each Tuesday she asks for three books in a certain category. Participants will post their lists and link to their posts at her site. This week's list looked like fun:
3 Books That Take You Back to High School
- Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck - This was my first foray into John Steinbeck.
- Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift - I loved Jonathan Swift in high school. Besides this book we read his short story "A Modest Proposal," which was an absolutely brilliant work of satire.
- The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer - Although this was a slog to get through, I thought the characters were fascinating. My favorite character was the Wife of Bath.
