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



Answer: As I went to high school in the 80s, I really don't remember my requried summer reads. However, I do remember some of my college required reading. I remember reading The Great Gatsby and falling in love with F. Scott Fitzgerald. Also I loved Walden by Henry David Thoreau.

  1. Hi Kinx - just found you via Parajunkee's. I'm starting to feel like I need to give The Great Gatsby a second read. I don't think speed reading it in 10th grade did the book justice. Maybe your rec will be the motivation I need ;)

  7. I wasn't required to read either of those books, but I read them both outside of class and liked them.

  9. I didn't really care for Gatsby myself. Didn't care for any required reading really except for the one and only book!
