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

I did my best to boycott many of the assigned reading books in high school – I hated them with a passion…in fact, I remember being placed in a remedial group at one stage because I hadn’t read the assigned book – even though I could discuss it…to this day, I haven’t read that book and don’t know if I ever will. (FWIW the book was I am David by Anne Holm). That being said, I had a hard time deciding on which was my favorite, so I’m putting two (heck, I’ve always been a rule-bender…)

The Diary of Anne Frank is what kicked off my interest in the Holocaust and studying different aspects of it – after completing it, I wrote 2 major high school assignments (English and History) on the Holocaust as well as taking an elective history college in college on it. It is a time period in history that I continue to be interested in to this day

Mr Atticus…need I say more 😉 But seriously, TKAM was just one of those books – I can’t describe why I enjoyed it as much as I did, but I did.

    Both excellent books! Honestly I didn’t even think about either even though they were both required reading. It’s hard for me to keep track of pre-goodreads reading anymore.

    My follow friday! Please stop by!
