Another of my New Years Resolutions was to expand my literature knowledge and try to broaden the content in what types of writing styles that I read.
This has been made more accessible by My Beloved Kindle.
Thanks to the fabulous Kindle Store on Amazon, they have two Top 100 Lists; Top 100 Paid and Top 100 Free.
Not one for missing out on a freebie, I have set straight to work downloading some Classics that are now available as part of the Top 100 Free.
Amongst the Classics available is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
Having never seen any of the TV Series or the film, I wanted to experience this book and get a feel of the writing style. It is all part of my journey to become a writer.
Although it is not what I class as an ‘easy read’ where I can easily slip away into a world of escapism.
It takes me a bit longer to get into this story, especially when I try to read on a night-shift. I find it hard as I have to somewhat concentrate more to read this than other books due to the different narrative and conversant language that is applied. But that’s the beauty of it being a classic; experiencing the writing of someone from the 1800s and how writing styles have progressed since.
Other Classics that I have downloaded for free that I intend to read this year are:
*The Importance of Being Ernest
*Adventures of Tom Sawyer
I am hoping it will aid my intellect and make me super brainy (well – one can dream!)
