1) I‘d make for an irresponsible wizard. So clearly, Hufflepuff is my house.
2) If by reading the required readings, you mean go to sparknotes, yes. Ain‘t no way I could read The Canterbury Tales. It‘s impossible!
3) Probably Lord of the Flies in 12th grade
4) Winesburg, Ohio in American Lit II
5) I dunno. As I‘ve gotten older, I realized that English classes did nothing but suck the fun out of reading.

1. Never got formally sorted on Pottermore, but did it in a livejournal group back in the day. Ended up in Ravenclaw but was close to being Gryffindor
2. Pretty much
3. Pride and Prejudice
4. Hm…Catch-22? I was super lost with that one 😂
5. To Kill a Mockingbird. Maybe if I had I wouldn‘t be almost 30 and haven‘t read such a classic

1) Hufflepuff for the win 🖤💛🖤💛
2) The vast majority of the time I would
3) The Alchemist
4) The Great Gatsby (I know, I know but god I hate this book and the two movie adaptations so much!)
5) The Hitch Hiker‘s Guide to the Galaxy (its a really weird and quirky book that‘s short but I think it might have helped some people get into reading)

Mandigolightly I‘ve never read the Alchemist. What did you like about it? 1y
Schnoebs @Mandigolightly I have to say it‘s definitely a book you have to read at the right time (kind of when you might have a big change in life or you need to make a decision). It‘s about how everyone has this specific, amazing path the universe has laid out for them but most people don‘t have the strength and courage to follow it because it can be really hard at times. It‘s very much a book showing how a leap of faith can really change your future. 1y
Mandigolightly @Schnoebs oh thanks for the tip! 1y

Othello | William Shakespeare
post image

1) Hufflepuff!
2) Yes. And when I had teachers who would let you read anything else, even if you were caught up (or ahead of the class), I read it again. And again.
3) Othello is the first one that jumps to mind.
4) Lord of the Flies
5) Something, anything with a little sci-fi or fantasy.

Rappaccini's Daughter | Nathaniel Hawthorne
post image

1. Ravenclaw
2. Yes
3. Wuthering Heights
4. The House of the Seven Gables. I found the writing too stilted. Oddly enough I didn't mind The Scarlett Letter and I read Rappaccini's Daughter my freshman year in college and loved it, so maybe it was just that one book of Hawthorne's that I didn't like?
5. I was never assigned anything by Dickens and thought that was odd.

The Berenstain Bears and the Trouble at School | Stan Berenstain, Jan Berenstain
post image

1. Ravenclaw, though Pottermore lost my sorting hat results after a few years and reassigned me to Gryffindor 😱
2. Yes, I was (am) a huge nerd. Even got the top student in English prize in my HS class of 600 😂
3. The Poisonwood Bible. And Shakespeare. In college, A Room of One's Own.
4. 1000 Acres by Jane Smiley. Also I hated the Monas ed of Crime and Punishment (summer reading😵).
5. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest or Shakespeare history plays

bookandcat For junior year in HS, summer reading was: all 3 books of LOTR, Jane Eyre, and Pride and Prejudice plus two movies (Elizabeth; Shakespeare in Love). For senior year, Crime and Punishment, Snow Falling on Cedars, The Poisonwood Bible, and a book off a list (I did Secret Life of Bees) plus a ten page paper on themes of Tolstoy's "every happy/unhappy family" quote. Loved the books but don't miss the stress. What was everyone's summer assignments? 1y
Mandigolightly @bookandcat oh wow that‘s a lot! We never had summer reading in school. It was just me and a box of garage sale paperbacks all summer long (edited) 1y
bookandcat @Mandigolightly wow! We always had sooooooo much but I think they've changed it to be less with more recent graduating classes in my old district 1y
