In the past week or two I’ve read:

  • Hamlet
  • Othello
  • Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
  • A Doll’s House
  • And chapters from my theatre history text books.

I think my head is going to explode with all the information and character stories that are swimming around in my mind. BUT I love it! I’m really loving reading all these plays and even find it fun to read textbooks. I’m trying to cram as much information and call to the surface as much theatre history as I possibly can before school starts. Between work, the trip to Ellensburg, and THE roadtrip, I think I’ll have plenty of time to get through lots of books. I’m actually surprised that I’m having fun reading Shakespeare. I know, I know. In the past, I’ve felt a bit like reading Shakespeare was a chore, but not this time. I really want to read MacBeth next, but I figure that bringing the Scottish play to the theatre is a BAD idea. That one will have to wait till another time. I also want to get A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Taming of the Shrew, maybe A Comedy of Errors… and some other of his classics. Plus, I have a long list of plays to read.

I’m just trying to figure out a way to keep all of these characters, stories, and history straight in my head. That’s my only fear… that I do all this reading and nothing stays. Ack!

I also have 3 (or 4) fun books that I want to read, but will probably wait till the road trip.

  • Best Friends Forever – Jennifer Weiner
  • The Time Travelers Wife – by someone I can’t remember.
  • The Sookie Stackhouse Series…
  • And I want to reread Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone… and maybe the others.

I just feel like I need to get my head in the game and as much as I’d love to read fun, fluffy stuff… it’s probably more beneficial to read school stuff now and save fun stuff till I need a break from school.

  1. Thanks, but I actually bought it today. I feel like I should own any plays that I’ve read/might want to reread… to add to my collection and whatnot. Did you enjoy reading it? I don’t think I’ve actually read it before, just seen productions and the movie. 🙂
