One of the things I love about being an English major is the fact that you get assigned good books to read as homework. I have gotten to read Jane Eyre, Othello, and several others since coming to college. These might not seem that exciting to you but trust me I was beyond happy to be reading instead of doing math equations. This semester I am taking a class called Young Adult Literature. It is exactly what it sounds like… we are reading books for young adults, and even a little younger than that. So far we have read Because of Winn-Dixie (a classic in the making) and I am currently reading The Hobbit (the prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy). Soon, we will beginning Tom Sawyer. How great is it that I am assigned to read books that I loved in elementary school? Meredith is great about having all sorts of options within your major and outside of it that are fun, interesting, and relevant. Be sure to try out Young Adult Literature for your general education literature elective when you get to Meredith!
