Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

Orlando: A Biography (Penguin Modern Classics)

Orlando - Virgina Woolf I have read a lot of Virgina Woolf and I must admit this is my most favorite. I like the fact that Orlando refuses to grow up and then one day finds himself transformed into a woman. It's a strange concept, I know, but I love how Woolf plays with gender in such fantastic language. She's like a modern day Shakespeare, since he too did a lot with women disguising themselves as men in humorous, literary ways. I can also see how her works have inspired modern authors such as Jeanette Winterson. It's all very exciting and I would certainly recommend this to others.
