I’m sharing it with you because it was so good. I must say I am team Wolfe.

Currently writing a YA novel. I love reading about everything, truly I'm not a book snob. Lately I have been "reading" a lot of picture books to my baby boy. In my past life before motherhood, I was a professional technical editor and writer.

  1. I’m not in the pit as it were but I’m team Wolfe also. Honestly, the so-called “classics” are painful to most students and do not cultivate a love of reading in a vast majority of people. I even know English majors who found them rather painful. While it is important to recognize literary heritage, it is also important to try to cultivate a love of reading and to do that you must find material that interests your students.

    I’m not really a huge reader because of my high school and college English experiences. It largely put me off. I read some here and there but probably not like I should. I actually went nearly a decade without touching a novel. It’s something I deeply regret now that I see a whole new world of literature out there and not just the painful stuff I was forced to read in high school.
