Essay Writing

So I'm currently reading Books v. Cigarettes by George Orwell, and I'm really enjoying it. I find that a well written essay really gets me thinking about how I approach items in my everyday life. It's getting me to think differently and I like that.

I'm going to start a list of other famous essayist I should read more of.

I'll give that essay a try. I like George Orwell. I read Animal Farm on my own in 8th grade, and really enjoyed it. And then after the essay, check out these two related essays:

Ebooks v. Cigarettes
How would George Orwell, calculate his modern day expenses in the post paperback age?
