Books Almost Everyone Reads:
This is a classic book, though I didn't particularly like it, that the majority of people had to read for school, or at least had a teacher recommend it.
Christopher Paul Curtis
Okay, so this one I'm not sure if everyone reads this but I had two different teachers make me read this so I would think it is a popular book for teachers.
Books That Were Painful To Read:
The House On Mango Street
I don't remember much from either of these books, which tells me two things: 1. They weren't memorable at all, 2.I probably didn't even finish them. This book is probably okay, but I literally don't remember anything besides it was boring.
The View From Saturday
E. L. Konigsburg
This one I am pretty sure was the better of the two, but still totally unmemorable.
Book That Were Actually Enjoyable:
I remember this was one of those books that you read in class and then watched the movie. This was a good book and with little kids (I read this in 3rd grade) if you bribe them with a movie, of course they will read.
I'm pretty sure this was a autobiography.....well not really. I don't know exactly what to call it, but this is the authors account of his humanitarian journey. It is actually a very interesting story.
Did you have to read any of these? What books did you have to read?
