Self-Ed 8/18/08

Read this week:
Anne of Ingleside (in progress)
Bambi (in progress)

Comments: Not much reading from me this week, I'm afraid.

Brave New World (completed)
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (completed)
The Screwtape Letters (completed)
1984 (in progress)

It was short(er) book week for me. 1984 will undoubtedly take me the greater part of the week to complete. Comments on Brave New World will be in a separate post. Dr. Jekyll... was a fairly easy read and quite to-the-point, which I appreciated. I found it to be an interesting read, although I'm sure it would've been a bit more captivating if the split-personality concept weren't already ingrained in our minds as plot devices.
I enjoyed some chapters of Screwtape Letters better than others. I found some parts difficult for me to understand. Overall, a good commentary on human nature and temptation. I think I might post a couple more quotes later on (read: filler).
