Sarah chastised me for putting aside Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell in order to re-read the Harry Potter series. It isn’t that I wasn’t enjoying the book — on the contrary, I was enjoying it quite a lot. However, ever since I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows this summer, I have been wanting to re-read the series from start to finish just to see what interesting connections I could make. Therefore, while you won’t see Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell in my current reading list, it’s just been put on hold on my nightstand, as has The Great Mortality. I will be reading Thomas L. Friedman’s The World is Flat as part of a professional learning course, so look for my thoughts and a review soon.
