Alva | 219 comments So, the majority of members here are teenagers, who still have to fight with reading assignments in school.
What books did you have to read? Did you like them? Do you like required reading assignments or do they annoy you?

I had to read To Kill A Mocking bird, which I liked
Hope was here, which I also liked
20,000 leagues under the sea which I DESPISE
The Hobbit and The Fellowship of The Ring, and I didn't like them. The over description nearly killed me
A Seperate Peace. More with the unnecessary description
Uh...I can't remember anything else

Izzy (izzybookholics) 'Cause I practically only study Math, Science and English, no reading assignments! HEHE!!!!


message 21: by Tia (new)

Tia (tia_jenkins) Not. Fair.


message 22: by Izzy (new)

Izzy (izzybookholics) lol hehe!! I might have to next year tho............going back to school and all!


message 23: by Tia (new)

Tia (tia_jenkins) Yeah you prbly will... They really aren't that bad. I'm actually looking forward to my required readings this year! XD


message 24: by Izzy (new)

Izzy (izzybookholics) Really? That's great then, I guess........I've been a little scared of the Shakespeare stuff tho!!


message 25: by Tia (new)

Tia (tia_jenkins) As long as your teacher helps you with all the Shakespearean talk you should be fine... Most books also have translations on the opposite sides of the page. That's how I made it through Julius Caesar


message 26: by Sapir (new)

Sapir | 104 comments We mostly read Hebrew classics, such as Someone to Run With (yes, it was translated to English). This book was kind of boring, but it has a strong message about the Israeli society.

Soon we're going to start reading the awful Hebrew translation of The Catcher in the Rye. I'm planning to read it in English before the school will ruin it for me.. :P


message 27: by Izzy (new)

Izzy (izzybookholics) HAHAHAHA!!!!! They actually have translations?? T-that is SO funny!!!! XDD But yeah, the Shakespearean talk is very confusing to me :-/


message 28: by Tia (new)

Tia (tia_jenkins) Once you get the hang of it it's not that hard


message 29: by Izzy (last edited Nov 23, 2013 10:31PM) (new)

Izzy (izzybookholics) Okayyy, well that's good to hear!! :DD *wipes brow*


message 30: by Sapir (new)

Sapir | 104 comments Yes, of course we do.. I mean, most of the kids in my year barely know two words in English so the most difficult book you can expect of them to read is a ten-pages-something-about-cute-ducks book.


message 31: by Resa (new)

Resa (dunstan) | 4 comments This year we are mostly reading short stories. My freshman year we read Finnikkin of the Rock which is a really good book. And last year we started to read To Kill a Mockingbird but we didn't finish it. So far this year we have read The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe and one of his other short stories.

Oh, Natalie! I have to read that too!
However, I have to read more in German than in English. I'll spare you my German reading list. In English we didn't have to read books until two years before this one. (We were too bad xD)'Til now we've read Animal Farm, some Judy Blume sh*t, Holes and of course now Of Mice And Men...

message 39: by Lve2read (new)

Lve2read | 3 comments Well, i'm in the middle of an essay i have to write based on the book i read called 'boy in striped Pajamas' based on the time of Hitler, and i didn't enjoy reading it at all, especially coz the boy (main character who was german) got gassed to death. and the boy was only Nine yrs old, which is what made it more horrific coz he was 'innocent', the fact he had know idea why people in the distance 'fell to the ground' and had to be carried away... so yeah pretty sad :(

message 43: by Sapir (new)

Sapir | 104 comments I cried for hours after I finished The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas.. I was only 10 years when I read it and I still remember it as if I've read it yesterday.. =/
