Cool Bookmark

Published 17/11/2013 by leannecrabtree

I also picked up this cool metal bookmark from a bookshop in Chicago’s airport. I may have to do as it suggests and read these books at some point. Though I have actually already read some: Lord of the Flies, Harry Potter series, Wind in the Willows, Frankenstein and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. And there’s some I wont read, such as the Bible.

Well i recently joined goodreads as mentioned in a previous post and i’ve been exploring the site and updating my account with all the books i’ve read/not read but on my kindle and i saw the trivia heading under the explore feature.

So i was answering questions and couldnt help noticing a lot of them were about classic books… And i had no idea of the answer on many of them, so guessed…and got a few right

My point with this is…as a writer (i’ll admit i’m only an amateur at the minute) should i be more familiar with the classics? Should i take the time to read them? Be inspired by them?
