Top Ten Tuesday

Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl invited us to share a school freebie this week. I thought about this topic for a few minutes. I’ve been out of school more years than I care to count. But learning never stops, does it? So I decided to share a list of ten books that continued my education after leaving school. I even divided them into subjects. Some books might not be obvious choices but they all work in my brain.

Literature Persuasion by Jane Austen

English On Writing by Stephen King

Philosophy Walden; or, Life in the Woods by Henry David Thoreau

      1. It might have been the focus on nature that appealed to me? But I never read a lot of him to know- either we didn’t get in depth or I just forgot. 🙂

  2. I do like your tweak for today’s topic!! You should suggest this one to Jana, it would be fun to see what everyone comes up with for continuing their education.
