The library is helping me fill in a gap in my education. Much to my embarrassment, I somehow managed to graduate from college with a degree in English Literature and a minor in gender studies without ever reading Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre. I even own a copy, given to me by an English professor when I was in graduate school. The book has quietly haunted me (darn gothic novels) from my bookshelf for at least 4 years now but I just couldn’t bring myself to commit. There are so many books in the world to read! The text seems so small! It was pathetic.
