Q:Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?
I love the question for this week. I give all the credit of my reading fanatism to my school. I was required to read many great books throughtout my school life. We were rquired to the usuall Shakespere but also we had books on poetry,short stories, and full length novels. Not to mention the books with extracts from classics like Pride and Prejudice and Emma, to name a few. Of course we had the good old library which none of my friends would go to. Whereas I would go and find old books which had stopped being issued and bring them home. They would have holes in them but I loved them so much I would read them anyway staying up all night. Yeah, I stayed up all night even in school to read my favourite books.
If I had to choose I was narrow my favourites down to
THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
It was so hard to read this as it a level higher than what I was used to but I loved it every page of it. I must have read it at least 4 times over the years. That’s not including the once we read with the class
ROBINSON CRUSOE by Daniel Defoe
This book was part of a project we were meant to do and I loved how Crusoe had to make do with whatever little resources he had had on the island. He was so lovely yet he made the most of it. It gives you hope and teaches you never to give up.
Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain.
What books did you read at school which were a pleasure rather than a pain to read?
