"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…"

Headmistress at the Common Room has introduced us all to DailyLit, a tiny piece of a novel conveniently (and insistently) delivered to your email box each day. I took a look at the selections, and chose A Tale of Two Cities. I was assigned to read this in high school, and did so, but can’t remember a thing about it except that it’s about the French revolution. So…since we’ll be doing House of Education year 9 next year, I thought this would be a good choice. Maybe this time around I’ll get a better grasp of the deep meanings…(I know they’re in there somewhere 🙂 I read the first portion today, and felt like there were a lot of insinuations that I didn’t understand, because I’m a 21st century American, but I will press on.

  1. Wow, maybe I should sign up for that. I used to really enjoy reading, now I can’t seem to get myself motivate to tackle tough classics. A little at a time might be doable…
