I had this plan which I think is a very good plan and I am currently working on. It is to read a number of middle-grade fiction, then read a number of YA books, and eventually work my way back to "adult" stuff. That's why I'm currently finishing the Percy Jackson series.
However, I just discovered that Margaret Atwood is going to be the keynote speaker at AWP. AWP is the Association for Writers and Writing Programs, and they hold an annual conference. This year it's in Chicago, and I will be there in a week and half.
Margaret Atwood! This is a sign from the universe that now is the time to be reading her!
So I am modifying my children's lit plan to incorporate Margaret Atwood.
That is all.
