My guilty pleasure for the moment is Lewis Caroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Before Alice In Wonderland became a Disney and Hollywood sensation, she was a book of fantastical literary concoction. T'was an ode to daydreaming for the everyday daydreamer.
"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes - and ships - and sealing wax -
Of cabbages - and kings -
And why the sea is boiling hot -
And whether pigs have wings."
~Through the Looking Glass (220)
Alice's whims are usually best served after my breakfast and right before Locke's Second Treatise. With Locke's more somber discussions about my right to kill a thief who steals from me in the State of Nature, it's always more amusing to know even Cheshire Cats may find that we're all mad [down] here.
While my classroom readings make for much food for thought, mixing reading genres make for incredible fun in thought. So what are you reading today? Don't be shy.
