    Fortunately when (if) you grow up, you’ll surely find employment that provides you with all the time you need for thotful rumination on any task assigned to you.

    The book report is just to make sure your read the thing.

    I think Caulfield is the type of kid who LOVES to read, except when it’s assigned. Then he doesn’t want to read it, BECAUSE it’s assigned.

    Read the book in front of a mirror. Then you can read and reflect at the same time.

    My grandfather said when I didn’t finish a homework assignment and got an incomplete, “Every reason you give for not doing your homework is bull****. Shut up and do your homework.” If Caulfield was a real kid, I think that advice would be applicable.

    Being in a book club carries the same perils. Especially when certain members make selections like Don Quixote. Gotta say, I can relate to what the kid’s selling. For once.

    Why is Frazz sweating? Heat, nerves, or colorist error?

    Mrs. Browning assigned terrible, unenjoyable books for reports.

    Good teachers make amazing work of a very tough job. Actually, a lot of tough jobs, and I think one of the toughest jobs at all is figuring out how and how hard to push students to dive into as much good reading as possible. I love reading and I live with deadlines, and I have to say, reading under deadline is not always the best reading. It can be done, of course. But it’s a tall order.

    As in so many endeavors, with reading, time isn’t a liability; it’s an ingredient. And as with any ingredient, there is a right amount. You need time to savor, but you can’t “savor” so long that you never get the book read, or that you lose momentum. So how hard to push?

    I don’t know. But I know from my own experience, reading a few books that I wouldn’t otherwise have finished or even started, that the most effective pressure is a book that was lent to you by someone you care about, are grateful to, whom you want to impress not only with finishing the book but with understanding it, enjoying it, getting it. Could be a girl you’re sweet on, a friend you trust, a peer you look up to. Oftentimes, it’s a good teacher.

    That sure sounds better than procrastination.
