*Image from papercuts.tscpl.org Title: NightAuthor: Elie WieselDate Read: January 2007Rating: 4.25/5 I’m not sure what happened between the years that I was in high school and when my sisters went, but I wasn’t assigned this book.

First things first

Recently I joined a few book clubs on Yahoo and noticed that several of the other members kept a blog of their readings. I used to do this in a notebook, but as school became more arduous (and I was reading 2-3 books at a time each week), I was unable to keep up with my notekeepings. The purpose of this blog is two-fold. First, I would like to keep a personal record of my […]
