40949 My favorite book that I was assigned to read in high school was Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse. My favorite book that I read on my own in high school was Catch 22 by Joseph Heller, or Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut.

I think an interesting question is what do you wish you had read in high school. Books push us in interesting directions and suggesting meaningful books to oneself retroactively is an intriguing exercise. I think I would have gotten a lot out of reading On The Road by Jack Kerouac, The Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Murakami, and Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins.

How's Hell's Angles coming?
40949 It is very exciting to see that so many of the books PCH students have chosen were assigned as summer reading or for a class-kudos to the English department.

I also encourage all of our students to continue to read as much as possible and from as wide a variety of sources and perspectives as possible-with rare exceptions never again will books have as great an impact on your intellectual and emotional development as they will over the next few years.

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying profoundly changed the way I view energy and the world. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

40949 What a book, or a song, or a piece of art mean to you one day often means something completely different to you on another. My interests, and my "favorites," seem to be perpetually evolving, so I would like to adjust the label slightly (for my choice at least) to the book that had the biggest impact on me when I first read it-Siddartha.

40949 Amazon Student in an offshoot of Amazon Prime that is a great resource for students in college. Students can sign up just by entering their school and major (need an "edu" email address) and receive all sorts of free shipping benefits. I currently am on an Amazon Prime account and get free 2-day shipping on most of my book purchases (not $0.01 ones, unfortunately). Worth checking out, especially for you current seniors...
