Last summer, I picked up The Well-Educated Mind by Susan Bauer and began barreling through Don Quixote. Fall semester snuck up on me and brought along piles (and piles!) of other books, so DQ found a nice quiet place in a box somewhere. Luckily, throughout the semester I read through a few WEM books including: A Portrait of a Lady by Henry James, Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gulliver's Travels by Jonathon Swift, and Tartuffe by Moliere.
So while I was slacking with Don Quixote, I was essentially reading other WEM books (because I had to).
With the fall semester over, holidays over, training-for-a-half-marathon over, I dug out DQ and cracked it open to Chapter 25 where I left off and re-familiarized myself with the gallantly silly adventurer.
I plan on returning to my WEM reading challenge and posting semi-regularly with thoughts, questions and reflections.
