    Notice, she didn’t say that had to work any of the problems in the math workbooks.

    Long as it’s not the unabridged catcher in the rye. We had to read that tripe in high school and one wonders how many readers it turned off with “$&” “&*($(” “$#^&” Sheesh, what is it with boomers calling cusswords every 3 words a “classic”?

    Huh. I did not know there was an abridged version of “The Catcher in the Rye”.

    “Centennial” by James A. Michener is also a classic, and it contains occasional curse words, such as “Twenty dollars and you can kick the bull$#!+ thing all the way to Philadelphia.”

    My problem with Catcher in the Rye wasn’t the profanity. It was just the fact that it was so boring.

    I never, never had the same teachers the next year as I did the previous. Also, with many families moving with parents changing jobs, many kids would not be returning to the same school. So, a teacher assigning homework over the summer vacation makes absolutely no sense.

    “I think that’s the only face she’s got.”

    And it is UH – gly.

    Nor I. I think it’s a more modern invention.

    My only vacation reading was the summer editions of My Weekly Reader.

    Thank you, dear Mrs. Olsen, for including science books.

    There are a lot of books called “classics” that are tripe, unfortunately. And not enough credit is given to current or recent work that includes lots of vocabulary and encourages kids to read. The Harry Potter books, for example, are certainly not “fine literature”, but they got a lot of kids excited about reading well before the movies were made.

    Anyone with kids 10-12ish – consider the book “So You Want To Be A Wizard” by Diane Duane. Pre-dates Potter, and (I think) better. Or, older, “My Father’s Dragon”.

    Could be wurst. Imagine having to read Finnegans Wake.

    Thankfully, I never had a summer reading list. I read because it was fun and something to do. I’ll bet most of them will be like Charlie Brown and wait until the last minute to read whatever. lol
