Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

The Once and Future King by T.H. White.  I had to read this during summer in preparation for my English class in high school and I remember bringing it round on my trips to Disneyland and reading it while waiting in line - best way to spend that boring time - and really devouring the whole book.  There is so much that goes on in it and I found it all fascinating.  And I wonder if Arthurian legend had the first love triangle??

  12. "The Pit and the Pendulum," fifth grade; teachers had a little more latitude, and kids were regarded a bit more highly back then...
