I'll be teaching my class from home until further notice. Maybe that will mean spare time in the afternoons. Maybe that will mean I'm busier than ever. Who knows. At any rate, if I have any extra minutes I plan to spend them doing some of my favorite things: reading, writing, or cooking.
The latter hobby may suffer from a sheer lack of grocery store access. I may not be able to go to the library, but I have full bookshelves and a full Kindle e-reader. Writing? Anywhere, anytime, almost no supplies needed.
During spring break, I've been revisiting a few of my favorite classic short stories, many of which I first discovered in my beloved 7th and 8th grade ABeka readers.
For those of you stuck at home, I've included links to a few of my favorites. (Maybe now is the time for cheery, happy stories, but I happen to love imperfect endings. Sad stories, twist endings, stories with a side of creepy...) So here goes:
"The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant
"Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
"The Green Door" by O Henry
"The Lady or the Tiger" by Frank Stockton
"The Dinner Party" by Mona Gardner
"The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell
"Miss Hinch" by Henry Sydnor Harrison
"The Man with the Twisted Lip" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
