Do you love books?

Lemire (skim Ch 2-7) -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"Again, that may sound obvious--until you appreciate that the kinds of books you encounter as a student are a slim fraction of the kinds of books published in America every day."

In the two years that I have been at Seton Hill, I have seen people come and go in the English program. One freshman who was in one of my classes last semester was an English major for the first two weeks of school before she realized that English wasn't all that she thought it would be. I think this is a really good book for Englsh majors at any stage in their education. However, I think it's a REALLY good idea to read something like this before you get to college and take classes. It has a lot of useful information and Lemire does a really good job at kind of playing the devil's advocate and getting you to look at all sides of the issues. The fact that you like books does not mean that you should be an author. Sometimes you need someone to be straightforward with you, and Lemire did that for me.

Lemire does a great job and it might of been helpful to some when they were choosing the English major. Studying English is more than books which some don't seem to get & Lemire did a good job in that, I agree.
