Summer Reading

So today was not a whole lot of fun. No, it really wasn’t much fun at all. I spent nearly all day reading The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for Honors English next year. The book itself isn’t the greatest (far too much Britishness if you ask me) but it isn’t horrible. It’s the questions that get you, in my opinion. Personally, I don’t and won’t enjoy or maybe even read a book that I am forced to write detailed analyses of while I read it Doing so detracts from reading and enjoying that book. Oh well, I can’t tell teachers how to teach.

I also have to read another one (the title eludes me), but I am fairly certain that I won’t like it as much (from reading the synopsis.) Currently, I’m reading two somethings far more enjoyable for my own personal interest. First off is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Some may say I should be reading books above it, but the fact is I enjoy reading it and I missed out on a lot when I read it the first time in two days. Secondly, I’m finishing Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I started it as a free reading book for my last Honors English course and didn’t have time to finish. I’m almost there!

That, my friends, concludes summer reading as of yet.
