I read this book in my high school honors English class and remember falling in love with it. Even now, years later, it is one of my favorite classics! 📚💕

This is a #CanadianClassic and one that was on the curriculum when I was in high school. I remember quite enjoying it. Interesting side note: I haven‘t opened this book in years and when I did, I found these retrieval request notes, probably from my school library! #GratefulReads #readinhighschool

Nute This is one more reason why I love Litsy! Thanks for sharing info about this book. I never really thought about the fact that high school required reading lists would probably vary a lot from country to country. I think that I‘m going to try to locate this book so that I can share in the experience of reading a Canadian Classic required for High School.🙂 (edited) 3w

PurpleyPumpkin @Nute So true! I‘m sure required reading lists are quite different depending on where you are. Your comments prompted me to Google this book and I was surprised to learn the some school boards have been pressured to ban Laurence‘s books. 🙄Glad I wasn‘t in those schools! 3w

Pygmalion | George Bernard Shaw

One of my favorite reads assigned in high school!! 🌻

It‘s gaining a whole new meaning now that I‘m learning about the book‘s namesake: Pygmalion from Greek myth — the one who fell in love with his creation. Gives it a whole Narcissus/Dorian Gray vibe too.

Linsy #NFNov Learning about the Greek myths is casting a whole new light on my English degree. @Clwojick @rsteve388 (edited) 3w

#gratefulreads Some books I #readinhighschool (called Secondary School in the UK at least if you are my age😬) All these are due a re read 👍
@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

charl08 Confusingly, my UK secondary school was called a high school (!) 3w
Balibee146 @charl08 I suspect that's an age thing... 'High school' seems to have come more into use in the last couple of decades? I left school in 1987!! 😱😱 3w
charl08 Nope, I think the local community just never changed it from when it was first built. Funny how these things come round again! 3w

Some of the books I #readinhighschool that are still in my home library. It hadn't occurred to me how few women authors I read in school until I saw this lineup. I especially loved Hemingway and Faulkner back then. I thought I was the cat's pajamas when I finally figured out how to read The Sound and the Fury.

This is one I #readinhighschool, and it ignited a love of Hardy that survives to this day. #gratefulreads @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

SW-T It was my first, but not last, Hardy. 😊😊😊 3w
Lcsmcat @EadieB @Redwritinghood @Jas16 @SW-T I had no idea there were so many Hardy fans out there! 3w
EadieB @Lcsmcat I want to read Jude the Obscure next. Have you read that one? 3w
Lcsmcat @EadieB I have. And not to discourage you, but it‘s the bleakest of his that I‘ve read. 3w
EadieB @Lcsmcat I picked that one because it's on the list of 1001 books to read before you die. 3w
Lcsmcat @EadieB Don‘t get me wrong. It‘s worth reading. It‘s just different from his other works. 3w
EadieB @Lcsmcat Ok! Tess is a good one too! 3w

book_em_danno One of the only books I read in high school, and it still makes me sad when I think about it 3w
bullbunny I read this in high school, didn't like it. Haven't reread it though. Maybe my opinion has changed 🤷‍♀️ 3w
ImperfectCJ I didn't read Steinbeck until after college. My first was Cannery Row, which I read on the Greyhound bus between the resort near Lake Tahoe where I worked and San Francisco where I visited friends. It was a near-ideal way to read Steinbeck, and I was hooked. (I was told that Steinbeck built one of the staff cabins at the resort where I worked; I'm not convinced that's true, but it was compelling when I was 20.) 3w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @bullbunny I didn‘t either!! I really don‘t like classics 🤷🏼‍♀️ 3w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @ImperfectCJ that is cool! I wonder if it‘s true!! 3w
Eggs I read and taught this book but it is kind of depressing 3w
jmtrivera I'm reading this with my students currently! 3w
