For #9 on the Nerd in the Brain Summer Reading program challenge, I read Howards End by E.M. Forster. The challenge was to read a book published before 1950. Howards End was published in 1910.

The world in Howards End is very different than modern times. There’s still the class distinction between rich and poor but it doesn’t seem so extreme.

For example, I’m poor but it doesn’t keep me from living life. I’m a little nervous about retirement because it’s imminent. I’m thinking I will talk Lucas into getting a mobile home and traveling. Then when it’s our time to go, our families can send us off in a very Viking way – set the darned thing on fire and send us over a waterfall. Maybe that’s extreme, which is why it should be done.

Anyway, back to the book . . . I really liked Margaret. I empathize with her worrying about where to live. I’m pretty sure I would not have married Henry but I guess she liked him. She just seemed so independent and too smart for him. He was so short-sighted and lacking emotion but he redeemed himself in the end.

P.S. It is Howards End instead of Howard’s End. I learned something new today.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
