    I reckon Indian students are currently studying an Aravind Adiga short story as I’m suddenly getting hits on my review of one of his, and one person asking me to explain the end. I didn’t!

      • whisperinggums says:

        Oh yes, I certainly can anyhow. There is always a flurry when the northern hemisphere schools go back – and they tend to hit particular posts. The intriguing thing is that it’s a few short stories – Virginia Woolf, Kate Chopin, in particular – so I’m guessing teachers start with short stories which is really great to see.

        Good! Some great feminists of their time. We teach both of those in 11th at the high school where I work. The boys have a really hard time with Chopin.

      • Cassie says:

        I actually don’t teach Chopin because I teach Newspaper, Creative Writing and 9th grade so we don’t do her in my classes, but the 10th grade teachers teAch The Awakening. :)

      • whisperinggums says:

        Oh couldn’t you? I’m glad you didn’t lie! Interesting though as it’s one of the few American classics I’ve read twice. I’d read it again. I wonder why you couldn’t get through it?

    That’s funny, I had someone ask me about the themes of The Gift of Rain once and I thought how odd.

    I love Kate Chopin’s short piece called A Reflection, I think boys might be able to relate to that. The Awakening perhaps not.

    You could have one of those “book nooks” from that link above. Just take the door off of your closet in your library, add bookshelves and a chair, and your usual whimsy, and it will be done. Thanks for another Newsday, even if it came on Wednesday. Hey, when do we get our Bookish Christmas shopping ideas blog? I would like to get my shopping done early.
