Feature Friday: Required reading

Feature and Follow Friday question:

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

I have three: Jane Eyre, Return of the Native, and Animal Farm (I still quote Animal Farm in everyday life). I love them still. However, I still don’t care for Wuthering Heights. What about you? Any required reading that stuck with you?

To follow: there is a newly (as in about five minutes ago) Facebook page, twitter, email, or RSS. Any or all if fine with me!

    Jane Eyre is fantastic. I read it twice in a row and couldn’t get enough of it 🙂

    Only Animal Farm of those was required reading for me (and I did love it).

    I like your hiking pictures! I posted some on my blog from Yellowstone and Glacier recently.

      I’ve always wanted to go to Glacier, we spent a week in Yellowstone in 2010 – it was great!

    Hopping through. What adorable kids! I wish I hiked, but I’m afraid of heights.

      Thanks for stopping by! I’ve always wondered if a fear of heights would affect hiking (I didn’t know if it was just being up high or feet leaving the ground).

    I really enjoy the writing talents of Orwell, too!

    Good job on becoming vegetarian, I’ve been a vegan for years now… I don’t know if you get into the awards on WordPress or not, but I nominated your blog for an award– More info can be found here:
    Enjoy the day & keep up the great work!

    • Rory O’Connor

      Thanks for the nomination! I don’t think I could be vegan, but I applaud your willingness to forgo cheese!

      • J. E. Lattimer

        You’re welcome & thank you– I made the transition in stages, I was a vegetarian for a few months, then decided to just take it all the way. Enjoy the weekend over there!

    You’re a vegetarian???
    My favorite read in school was Cue for Treason, Grade 8.

    • Rory O’Connor

      I try, though I’m neither particularly dedicated or successful. It helps that I really just don’t care for meat. I’ve never heard of that one, but then again I’ve tried to repress all of my middle school years!
