I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

T.G.I.F (26)

TGIF is a fun little feature hosted by Ginger @ GReads! Every week we re-cap what has happened on the blog plus Ginger asks a question for us to answer. This week’ question is: Required Reading: Which books from your school days do you remember reading & enjoying? Is there a book published now that you’d like to see in today’s curriculum for kids?

As always Ginger asked a very good question.

Now I am way too young not to remember all of the books that I’ve read in school. So we’ll just go with the fact that I read so much in school it’s hard to remember which books I was supposed to be and which ones I wasn’t.

I will say that enjoyed Make Lemonade by Virginia Wolff, it was a good book about working with all of the things that life throws at you.

By far my favorite book from school was The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. My guidance councilor told me that it was a good book, and when I went to Barnes and Noble I saw that it was on sale so I brought it. Then my English teacher (Honor’s English, I’m really pride of that fact) told me we were going to read it in class I waited to for them to start the book. But a week into the book I finished it without them, they took too long and the book was ready good.
When the movie came out I brought it and it was so good.

I think this is one book that all schools should make a part of their curriculum. I can’t think of any other books that should really be a part of school’s curriculum.

  1. Seriously? I'm barely 19 and I can't remember all of the books I've read in school. One was about a ghost, another one was about aliens and grasshoppers, I think. Not sure, though. oô XD Damn, Elementary school.

    Happy Friday!

  2. I haven't read the Kite Runner. I'm going to have to check that out. I hope you'll drop by my post and see my answers.


  3. I have been out of school for soo long now that I was shocked for a hot minute that Kite Runner would be in the mix. I never read the book but I saw the movie. It was amazing and now that you mentioned it...I think this would be a perfect addition to the required reading list.

  4. I'm just now remembering all of the books I had to read as I browse everyone's posts.
