This Week's Question:


Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?


As if I wasn't only fours years out of high school or something, I can't quite remember my required summer reading. The fact that I've read so many books doesn't help either. I do remember "Coming of Age", "Utopia" and "Dysfunction" being common themes of the books we read. Earnest Hemming, Ayn Rand, "Ellen Foster", "To Kill a Mockingbird" are some authors and books I remember specifically. 





It's going to take a while to get through this list, but I'll try to follow everyone. If you're one of my few followers already feel free to add yourself to this list, and re-post this on your blog, be sure to follow the hosts alisoncanread and parajunkee.

We actually skipped over reading To Kill a Mockingbird, so I've never read it. I don't even know what it's about (other than a vague idea of racism). Isn't that wierd?

Anyways, new follower! Here's my FF:

My memory of it is actually kind of vague, but it deals with a black man in the south who is accused of a crime and the white lawyer trying to save him. There's a little girl, Jem, who is one of the main characters.

I never read To Kill a Mockingbird but I might want to, I feel like I'd enjoy the read.

To Kill a Mockingbird is an excellent book that I'm glad is required reading almost anywhere.
