Emma

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on April 12, 2009 by thebluepearlgirl

I love reading but I’ve decided lately that my literary repretoire is lacking in the “great classics” department!  I really like Jane Austen so I decided I would begin expanding my list wth “Emma”.  So far it is very good and I highly recommend it.  You can purchase it by clicking here.  I enjoyed Persuasion and Pride & Prejudice when i read them a couple of years ago… all of her books have such a romantic feel with an added dash of wit!

 

I also picked up a book about Madame du Pompador since I enjoy learning about European (especially European royal) history.  I need suggestions on other classics to add to my “need to read” list though… 🙂

Clip Masterpiece?

Most clip art I see around looks child-like and is often colorful and simple.  I recently found this amazing site published by Florida’s Educational Technology Clearinghouse.  You can find it here.  The clip art is more like tiny masterpieces.  I love diagramatic, realistic art which these clips certainly are.  I hope you all enjoy!
