We all had to read things in school that we didn’t like … but what
about something you read for a class that you ended up liking (or
loving)? An author you discovered that you might not have found? A
genre you hadn’t thought about?
O.K. So I graduated on June 2, 1958, so this isn't an easy question for me to answer. Back in those days we were required to read books and write book reports about them. I do remember the title of the book that introduced me to reading, and finding that I enjoyed reading for fun and entertainment. I think I was probably in the 8th grade when I read it. The title of the book was "Hot Rod" and it was a book about kids and their "Hot Rod" car. For some reason I loved that book, and that is the book that jumped started me into my love of reading. I also remember I liked the book "The Good Earth" by Pearl Buck. I should read that one over again, and see why it appealed to me at the time. I wonder if I would still like it? And of course my all time favorite book was "Cinderella" I still love that book after all these years!
What did you read in your schooldays that you enjoyed reading?
