Proofreading and Nature?

I’ve submitted my final exam for Caitlyn Pyle’s General Proofreading course! Actually, I submitted it a few days ago and already got it back. I missed some errors, so I had to correct and resubmit, which I just did. Ahh! I was afraid that I probably missed something, but I was pretty darn embarrassed by…

Summer Update

About a month and a half ago I finished reading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell.  Unfortunately, my summer classes started and I had zero time to write a review.  I’d rather not try to give an in-depth review two months after the fact, but I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed the book.  Yes, it…

Sense and Sensibility

I’ve been reading Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility for my Women’s Lit class.  I’ve never read it before and have never desired to read it.  I found Pride and Prejudice somewhat painful to read many years ago and never attempted Austen again. I’m through the first volume and surprisingly, I don’t hate it thus far. …
