Right now I am reading Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Looking back on my goals, I think I chose a good book to transition through genres and to expand my reading time. Jane Austen’s words really motivate me to think deeply about the book’s ideas. However, the romantic aspect lures me in and at the same time, the mix of the historical background expands the genres types.
Before starting this book, I was also doing some required reading. My group read the book The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi and that also expanded my reading genre a bit. While this book was a graphic novel, it was also a politically based book where it talked about bigger ideas. The ideas introduced a bigger perspective on how the government can have an effect on peoples everyday lives.
In general, I think I am doing well in terms of expanding the genre’s I read, however, I am still not reading for the time I would like.
