Reading List (I've struck through what I've already read):
- "The Gift of the Magi" (O. Henry)
- "A Retrieved Reformation" (O. Henry) and "The Necklace" (Guy de Maupassant)
To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee) Of Mice and Men (John Steinbeck) "Mother to Son" and "A Dream Deferred" (Langston Hughes)
- "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" (James Thurber)
- "The Miracle Worker"
- "The Hollow Men" (T.S. Eliot) and
"The Road Not Taken"(Robert Frost)
"Accessory is hardly a word that needs dressing up, but if you want to add just a spot of formality or irony to it, appurtenance does the job pretty well. Appertain is the most closely-related verb, and from there the meaning pretty much leaps out: an accessory object that pertains to a particular activity."
-Smart people (Just copy anything in quotation marks you find on this website and paste it into Google to find who wrote it, I don't have time to attribute everything- do it yourself)
