Last week I made a goal to read Pride and Prejudice by the end of September. I'm at chapter eight. Jane has just come down with her cold and she and Lizzie are at Netherfield. I'm glad that much of the dialogue is pretty much the same as the movies, at least some of the time. It makes the reading a bit easier.
Between chapters of P&P, I'm reading the Sherlock Holmes series, starting with A Study in Scarlet. Quite enjoyable so far. I've downloaded some other classic books like Gulliver's Travels, The Time Machine, and A Little Princess. At this rate, I might have a few classics under my belt by the end of summer.
