Transcript of Ms. Duffield' Reading Journey

Ms. Duffield's Reading Journey
The Beginning
Early favorite books:
Monster at the End of the Book
Bedtime for Francis

Many of my early, beloved books featured animals getting into and out of trouble
The Journey: Learning to Read
As a chatty child, I've always loved language and words
I learned to read around kindergarten time and my big "helpers" were my mom, and my first grade teacher, Mrs. Marshall

The Challenge!
I've read several challenging books along the way:
Salman Rushdie's "Midnight's Children"
Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "House of the Spirits"

My Abyss book: James Joyce's "Ulysses"
I finally took a class/seminar to help me
I still hate this novel
Reflections on Favorites
I have several books that I feel have changed who I am as a reader. I more feel that certain quotes have changed my perspectives. Here are a couple:

“If you feel your value lies in being merely decorative, I fear that someday you might find yourself believing that’s all that you really are. Time erodes all such beauty, but what it cannot diminish is the wonderful workings of your mind: Your humor, your kindness, and your moral courage. These are the things I cherish so in you. I so wish I could give my girls a more just world. But I know you’ll make it a better place." -- Marmee, Little Women”
― Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

“Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but - I hope - into a better shape.”
― Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
My Reading Nowadays:
Pretty similar to where I started--most of my daily reading is about animals who get into and out of trouble
