    I never had problems reading during the summer….just reading what they wanted me to read….they finally gave up.

    We never were given a reading list for the summer and I have never had to be forced to read.

    Repeat after me, Peter: “Would you like fries with that?” Your future in the fast food culinary arts awaits!

    U.S. Marines are encouraged to read from the Commandant’s book list.

    The only time I was given a “summer reading list” was on a dare. My English teacher loved romance novels a la Harlequin. I told her that I thought they were stupid. She gave me the dare of reading just a few during the summer, then in the fall come back to her & discuss. It just so happened that my mother (who had a sideline with a consignment store), received a whole BOX of those types of books! I read the first one…not bad. Read the second one…pretty much the same. Third…same. I probably read a dozen. In the fall I went back to my teacher and said, “I read some (gave her a list of the ones I read), and they’re STILL stupid.”

    I’m with you AI. I read, constantly, as a kid, but rarely liked what I was told to read. Luckily “summer reading lists” were something I never heard of outside of comics.

    I remember that in order to get a free ticket to Six Flags, they wanted you to read a certain amount of books. Ashamed as I am to say it, I never read the books but just put a check mark next to six different random books on the list. It wasn’t until after I was done with school that I took pleasure in reading for fun.

    I’m surprised that Marines can read, must be the New Breed. USN 65-95

    I never understood why people don’t like to read. I always found it pleasurable. A good book is a wonderful escape. I remember bookworms being hung on the classroom wall in grade school that were made of paper rings corresponding to the number of books read. I had the longest one. :)

    My Grandmother gave me a bunch of books for Christmas one year when I was a little kid. I remember opening a box and groaning and saying something about “dumb books” or something .There was Lassie, Combat , The Real McCoys, Mystery at Rustler’s Fort and several others. They sat untouched for the longest time. Then , like K.C., I picked one up and read the first few pages and thought that this stuff was actually pretty good.. That was it ! I’ve had my nose stuck in a book ever since.

    @John Powe
    Funny! I choose not take take that as insult. In fact, we jarheads are not quite as dumb as we may seem to be. If ever there was a “dumb” service it is the Army, with the lowest standards of recruitment policies. USMC, the dep’t of the Navy.

    What I wouldn’t give for a summer where I could just read and not be bothered with mowing, weedwhacking, working or chores of any sort. Only time I get to read anymore is when I’m on the pot.

    Thanks, Some of my best friends are Marines, although I never would admit that in the Chiefs Club! USN 65-95
