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

I loved reading 1984 by George Orwell for my AP English 11 class in high school.
It captured me from page one and it is one of my favorite books.
Loved it.



What's your favorite required read?

I never had 1984 as a book on a reading list - but I remember reading it for the first time myself, and I loved it. Great pick and happy friday!

1984 is a classic. I would have hated having to write essays and exams about it though!

I have had this one in my required reading. Maybe I should start reading all the classics I've missed...

Every time I visit your page I get this huge smile on! I love love love your layout. So cute and quirky!

Hm. We weren't required to read 1984. Ours were more of "Their Eyes were Watching God" and "To Kill a Mockingbird" types.

1984 is a great book. I love that in the midst of all of the serious stuff, it's also a love story. Sort of. And, one of the best endings ever. Which I don't want to even hint at because it's a major spoiler. Have you read 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami? One of the best books I've read in the past 10 or so years. I read 1984 while reading 1Q84 and it was amazing.

Terrific pick. I think this nicely segue-ways to the Dystopian YA's that I'm currently into!
