Mary's Books

I have loved to read since I was little. I would borrow many books from the library and still borrow to this day, but I also purchase books (mostly for my kids) and freebies on Kindle. I read as much as I can daily. Sometimes I read several books at one time. I don't have a preference of paper book over an ebook, I just love to read. Keeping lists of what I have read is a good way for me to remember.

1984 - George Orwell

So prophetic. TVs that can watch you, books being banned and no thinking allowed. I remember reading the book back in high school (a classmate had had to read the book and when the year ended many books were thrown into the trash - I rescued them) and I was not a fan of sci-fi at the time. I still am not fond of the genre, but I have come to appreciate that many of the things foretold have come to pass. I assigned this to my girls for their literature and we had a lively discussion.
