    Good morning!
    Love this, love this!
    so helpful to me…my son is 12 and I will def be using your info/summary here….we spend much time discussing deeply classics and quality lit and English major that I am ( sometimes I feel fraudluelnt given how much I do NOT know!!) I have never read Wakefield, altho we DID visit Hawthorne’s home while in MA two summers ago! 🙂
    I found you on the NOBH site. I joined NOHB a while ago and have been sharing a few posts in several categories, but have not gotten to fully visit each of the NOBH hosts……I wish there were more hours in the day!
    I look fwd to your posts and to getting to know you thru the blogosphere.
    Thanks so much…I’ll be signing up to follow your blog so I don’t miss anything.:)
    Have a wonderful day

    I love Hawthorne. One of my favorite short stories is The MInister’s Black Veil. Lot’s of themes to discuss.

    Good morning to you too Chris!

    Thank you for stopping in and checking out my blog! I love NOBH for the opportunity to visit many blogs of similar genre that might be of interest to you. I had never read Wakefield myself and probably wouldn’t have were it not for the fact that my daughter was struggling to find meaning in it. So I read it aloud to her and we discussed it at length along with finding a few things on the Internet that were so helpful. I like to collect things we find useful and post them on my blog. It is not only a great reference for me, but in turn it might help someone else!

    Hi! I found you through NOBH, and am now following your blog. I love Hawthorne, and your comparison to Cast Away is spot on. I can’t imagine how hard it would be to be put in that situation. I love the history in Salem, Mass., and hope to see Hawthorne’s home someday, as well as The House of the Seven Gables. Have a great day!

    Hi Shandy! Thanks for stopping in. I had never read Wakefield but enjoyed it immensely.
