Since I love reading, I’ll answer number 5. I’ve been working my way through a list of the “must read” classics, so I just finished “The Prince” by Niccolò Machiavelli. At only 75 pages, it was a quick read. The author gives advice on how to gain and keep power during the Renaissance. His advice, was at times cruel, but unfortunately, it was probably just simply practical.
I usually only read one book at a time, but I have several going right now. I still haven’t finished “The Man Who Laughs” by Victor Hugo. It’s very slow moving and almost nothing happens until about halfway through the book.
I’m a member of a book club and we’re currently ready “The Tiger’s Wife” by Tea Obreht. The story is set in an Eastern European country experiencing a civil war. So far, the plot revolves around a young women and her close relationship with her grandfather, who seems to have a mysterious story of his own that he’s been hiding.
Finally, I’m still trying to get through “Inside I’m Hurting” by Louise Bomber. I promised to review the book here when I’m done and I’m slowly making progress. It’s designed to be a resource for educators working with special needs kids.
