The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton
Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
The Color Of Water by... well I don't remember right now.

The only one I actually read was the Andromeda Strain and about half of The Color of Water.
Yet I still got 100% on everything. tongue.gif

Or maybe your teacher killed it. I haven't read it or anything.
But in my experience, teachers kill good books.
READ IT RIGHT NOW OR WE'RE THROUGH.

My teacher was an idiot. Like really, one of the worst teachers I've ever had.
But really I don't think she did all that bad of a job with it.

i've read Oedipus Rex and Antigone.
Can be pretty tough to get through, but i think its worth the read.
they can get a little graphic and creepy at times though

Im currently reading Emile for my philosophy class.
well actually i havent started it, ill probably start it tomorrow

The latest book i read for myself though was Lullaby by Chuck Palahnuick. Great read i must say


oh and teachers definitely kill books

Sometimes. I've only started reading Alexie because we read one of his short stories in class. But then again my English teacher this year could probably coax blood from a stone.

Ugh, we're doing Antigone for the fall drama. I don't have any lines or actions other than standing next to Creon the whole time. But, the play itself is still nice. As much as I hate it, I like it, if that makes any sense.

ughhhh Antigoneeee pinch.gif we spent 3 months on that in English last year, which is wayyy to much time you should spend on a play the final months of your senior year. I don't think I could take doing it for drama, so kudos to you for sticking with it.

haha yeah it makes sense
oyy that sucks, no lines. but i give you major credit for sticking to this
actually acting out the play can get pretty boring.
I remember watching a play version of Oedipus, i almost fell asleep

Oh man, I'm going to be a frequent poster in this thread, haha.

As for now, I think the last book I bought was The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice. I still haven't read it though, it waits until I'm done with a few other books.

I normally get books from the library instead of buying them (my shelves are way too full), but the last book I bought and read for fun was Dead and Gone, the latest Southern Vampire Mystery. I still have stacks of unread books sitting around though - maybe I can get to them during winter break.
