Hot take: Favorite books you read for school
Join LibraryThing to post.
College/university included or only through secondary school? If the former, then The Magic Mountain and New Grub Street were favourites then and for years afterward. If the latter. then most were forgettable, some were slogs, none was a favourite e.g. bleedin Moll bleedin Flanders e.g. flippin Little House on the horrid Prairie which was even a slog to listen to when our teacher read it aloud to us 8-year-olds. At any rate at all levels the books I liked most were ones I chose that were required obliquely, i.e. for book reports, assignments like 'read a book about/by/like . . . ', or for term papers.
Not required but on the reading list: The Lord of the Rings—Queensland, Australia, 1966.
