Feature & Follow #161 English Lit Reading List

Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs! This week’s question…

Back to school. Create a reading list for the imaginary English Lit class you’ll be teaching this semester.

Hmm. The hardest thing to do would be to limit the number of books. I’d probably cheat by offering a range and then get students to focus in on the ones they thought were the most interesting. I think I went just a little overboard so you’ll have to forgive me.
