That Means What?

I finished How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C Foster on Wednesday. It is a pretty fast read for non-fiction. Essentially, Foster breaks down some major tropes, allusions and symbols for the lay reader. A big part of the book was a refresher of things i'd learned waaaay back in AP English Lit my last 2 years of high school, which i am glad i remembered. Foster mentions a lot of other books so my TBR has extended itself, again. *sigh* a 5 i would say. I've got Reading Like a Writer around here somewhere; maybe i'll read that soon. I've got 9(!) books from the library right now that i need to get through though.
