Review: The Time Machine by H.G. Wells

http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327942880l/2493.jpg 
“I’ve had a most amazing time....”

So begins the Time Traveller’s astonishing firsthand account of his journey 800,000 years beyond his own era—and the story that launched H.G. Wells’s successful career and earned him his reputation as the father of science fiction. With a speculative leap that still fires the imagination, Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future burdened with our greatest hopes...and our darkest fears. A pull of the Time Machine’s lever propels him to the age of a slowly dying Earth.  There he discovers two bizarre races—the ethereal Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks—who not only symbolize the duality of human nature, but offer a terrifying portrait of the men of tomorrow as well.  Published in 1895, this masterpiece of invention captivated readers on the threshold of a new century. Thanks to Wells’s expert storytelling and provocative insight, The Time Machine will continue to enthrall readers for generations to come.

2015 Audiobook Challenge 1st Quarter Update

 

Welcome to the first Quarter Update for the 2015 Audiobook Challenge. This challenge is hosted by The Book Nympho & Hot Listens.


I would like to say that I listened to a lot of audiobooks, but I didn't. I had many promising audios waiting for me in my mp3 player, but I simply did not have the time to "read" them. Sometimes life gets in the way...

However, I did listen to two books:

CSET Multiple Subjects Study Guides

http://sd.keepcalm-o-matic.co.uk/i/keep-calm-and-become-a-teacher-7.png

Alrighty folks, it has been a while since I've done an original post. One of the main reasons why I was absent the majority of February and March was that I was preparing for my CSET exam. For those that don't know, the CSET is the California Subject Examinations for Teachers.

Since I want to get my credential for special ed in elementary school, I had to take the multiple subjects test. This exam consists of three subtests with seven different subjects: Reading/Language Arts, History, Math, Science, Physical Education, Human Development, and Visual Arts. This is perhaps one of the hardest tests that a person has to take in order to receive an education degree.

I was dreading it. Not only was it more expensive, but I was terrified in taking all the subjects. It didn't help that I signed up to take all three subtests in one taking (there's the option to take them separately). Why did I do that? Well, I thought I could have everything set for the fall semester's deadline.

In order to get myself prepared for this examination, I turned to my local library. Luckily, my library system had a few CSET study guides.

February Wrap-up & Time for a Change




Hello everyone! I haven't done one of these in a while and I figured it's time to do so.

February was a very slow month for me when it came to reading. Sadly, I was only able to get through five books (three I practically rushed through to make deadlines).
