First Book!

Alright. First book of the year. What will it be. One of the hardest decisions ever is choosing a new book. After much debating and Humming and Hawing I decided on Aesop's Fables. One of the challenges that I set for myself a while ago was to expand my reading horizons. Actually I can pin point it to my fist college level English class. I had a fantastic professor who introduced some great literature. I realized that I could enjoy other books and genres besides YA. (A guilty pleasure I'll admit to having but have no intentions of stopping.) This was helped along with my humanities class in which we covered a great expanse of greek literature. So when I came across the "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die" list, I thought why not. Though I don't exactly intend to read every book on the list it's my goal to read a great may of them. This book happens to find its home on this list. Everyone knows a few of Aesop's Fables whether they realize it or not. Some more well known ones including: The Lion and the Mouse, The Ants and the Grasshopper, The Hare and the Tortoise. I've actually read this book before but I didn't want to start out with something too heavy considering classes start up again on Monday. Hopefully it will give me the momentum I need to get out of my book slump.
