My school's having a book sale this week. The prices are kickass. some of them are a little damaged and i think thats why theyre cheap..

I picked up all these for 36 bucks.

Pick me up a copy of Hamlet from those Signet Classic Shakespeare's. My copy of Hamlet doesn't have line numbers, which I need for my class.

I dug through the stacks trying to find a copy of Hamlet, no luck. They have new books out every day though, so hopefully they'll bring it out. I was also also hoping to find a copy of 1984, no luck so far.

I had a copy of Tao Te Ching but didn't have enough cash to get it along with the rest.. so I had to put it back, I went to get it today but it was gone.

I just read macbeth, its ok, but it takes me time to understand shakespeare but i do get it. Good story but not for me.
Ah yeah. Macbeth and Hamlet are my favourite Shakespeare plays. I haven't read Othello yet, but it sounds promising.

Hamlet is my favorite. Great choices though, wish my school had book sales.
I wish I had money...

I'll be reading a lot of Shakespeare this year. Currently in a Shakespeare On Stage class where we read Romeo & Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Twelfth Night or What You Will, and Hamlet. Twelfth Night I hadn't read, seen, or done before, so that was fun. Next quarter I'm signed up for a Shakespeare Tragedy course. I just declared both of my minors, and one is Theatre Arts.

I didn't really start enjoying shakespeare until I got into my current english class. She explains **** really well and makes it to where we understand it. *Basically translatin*.

On a lighter, immature, un intelligent note:
In 9th grade, we read Romeo and Juliet. We also watched the ORIGINAL ole timey movie based on it. Lemme tell u somethin. I've seen 13 year olds. Juliets tits weren't those of a 13 year old...
*in a class of 9th grade boys, seein titties at school in a movie is mindboggling thing at northeast*

I actually enjoyed the Leanardo Dicapro version of Hamelet. I thought that the vision of setting it in a gang war contemporary translated fairly well, even using the 'original' verbiage and script.

By far, McBeth is my favorite, followed by Midsummer Nights Dream.. I had an entrire set of Shakespeare in leather bound mini books, but they were destroyed when my house burned down in 2003.

Jeez, that's like every book I've ever had to read for school (besides 1984, Beowulf, Animal Farm, Catcher in the Rye, and a few others).

Which reminds me, one day I need to buy a book shelf that fits all my text books and other favorite books. Right now they aren't organized at all, which makes it a pain to look stuff up.

I just picked up a copy of the Malleus Maleficarum not too long ago. That's a fun one to read if you can find it.
