The school semester is nearly over, so for the last few days I've been compiling a list of books and stories I want to read over the summer break. Any suggestions? I'm mostly considering older science fiction like H.G. Wells and Jules Verne.
I would also like to read more Agatha Christie. I went through a phase in my younger teenage years where I read every Agatha Christie novel I could get my hands on, which was quite a few. Her twisty endings tricked me every time. Now, I can still remember some of her plots, but I don't know what the books are called. It's difficult to track down a book when the only thing you know is the solution to the mystery.
Sometimes when I'm alone I read out loud to myself, mostly poetry or Shakespeare. It is one of my favorite things to do. "The Raven" and "The Lady of Shalott" are two of the best. I think I'm pretty good at reading out loud, but I can't do it in front of people--I get dizzy and my stomache feels like I'm on a roller coaster and I start shaking uncontrollably. That's something I need to work on.
