Great Books Week and the NAIWE Blog Tour-- Thursday's Topic
Here's the next topic for Great Books Week: I hated … when I had to read it in high school, but when I read it on my own later, I loved it because…
I cannot tell a lie, I would not read most of the books I was forced to stomach in high school again if someone paid me to. I don't remember all of them, but those that were as enjoyable as taking a trip through the desert naked at high noon are:
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque, and Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott.
It is possible that I would like All Quiet on the Western Front and Ivanhoe now, but I hate to waste good reading time to find out.
