Hm. So I was just thinking recently, about all of the different books that I've had to read over the years for school, and how I liked some more than others.
So, I made a board.

What is your favorite book that you've ever had to read for school, or so far.
And if you're reading something now for school, what is it?
(:
I'd probably have to go with The Outsiders being my favorite, and then A Separate Peace from this year.
Currently reading; [ Or starting to anyway. ] Macbeth. /:

I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that
we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun
will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.

My favorite book I've had to read for school is, well a tie, To Kill A Mockingbird and Secret Life of Bees.

They are seriously amazing. READ THEM!!!

Right now I'm reading the Great Gatsby for AP English. It's pretty good so far, which I didn't expect.

I have never read The Outsiders, but I did go to a local bookstore, and purchase it.
I can't exactly remember what the book was called, but it was about a family from Ireland moving to the US to have a better life, and they run through a few problems, such as The Shirtwaist Factory incident. It looked as if it was going to bore out, but turned out to amaze us.

Well, I only read one book as of right now, it was called MONSTER.
I personally didn't like it. :l Oh well, we are now reading about the Holocaust and I know like everything about it already so, it's just like a review for me.

I think that I get to read To Kill A Mockingbird this year.
Everyone's been talking about it, anyways.

As far as I can remember, we've read The Outsiders, Of Mice and Men, Holes and Goodnight Mister Tom.
I didn't like any of them. :S
Especially considering how we were supposed to think they were written by absolute masters and how they were so relevant, even nowadays.
Gaah. I just hated school though. xP

I had to read a bunch of books for composition classes a couple of years ago. And most of them were incrediboring.
But Lord of the Flies wasn't as bad as I thought it was gonna be. I mean in terms of boring me to death. It was a bit gross though.

My school doesn't make us read books but more short stories. Out of the few books that my school has made me read (which is only three or four) I would have to say that my favorites were "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Hiroshima".

Yeah, I'm not really enjoying any of Shakespeare's works so far.
First Romeo and Juliet and now Macbeth. :[
Not cool.

I was thinking of getting Of Mice and Men at the library.

"Of Mice and Men" is a great book, I definitely recommend it. And yeah, I'm not much of a Shakespeare fan myself. I think I might light myself on fire if I'm ever forced to read another Shakespeare play again. :roll:

My school district doesn't beleive in assigning books at our reading level. :roll: We read the book Seedfolks in 8th grade.
However, I had an awsome teacher a few years back who had us read Animal Farm. That was great. Next year we're reading Lord of the Flies- I've heard good things about that.
What?
What do you mean, this is indigo?
Psh. It's obviously green.

Ah. That's cool guys.
We finished The Old Man and the Sea a couple months ago. Not my cup of tea. We only used it to write an essay.
Currently; To Kill A Mockingbird.

I'm not really sure if I like it yet.
