It is the last genre day!! 😭 the prompt is Classic or Required reading (if you didn‘t do our #requiredreadingredo challenge go check out the hashtag for ideas). Since some of these authors favorites will be impossible to find you can provide a weird or interesting fact about them instead! The wackier the better!

Here is my list of August #TBR, not being too ambitious this month. This list includes an Amazon best of 2018 pick, a book for the #3KingsBuddyRead, and one of the #classics that @ErinSueG and I have challenged ourselves to #requiredreadingredo. #augusttbr #readingresolutions #augustisatrip @vkois88 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Day 10 of #requiredreadingredo. The one #RequiredReading that everyone should read. This was not my RR but my daughter's (I read it years later) and we both loved it & couldn't recommend it enough. It's written all those years ago yet it's scary to see that this story is still relevant today. #readinglife #penguinbooks#PenguinEnglishLibrary #bookspine
Sorry I'm late on this😅🙈 here's my Day 9 for #RequiredReadingRedo I've never really needed to sneak books, but I did it once in primary school, read it under my desk in the drawer. And I was doing such a poor job that I got caught by the teacher🤣 Lucky she wasn't mad at all & recommended another book by the same author to me :) Forever grateful to her for turning me into a bookworm 🤗💖 #bookworm #readinglife @ErinSueG @WhiskeyMistress
#requiredreadingredo I can‘t pick just one. It‘s taken me the entire day. It past midnight and I still can‘t decide. I think there are many required readings that every one should read. Let‘s be honest, that‘s why they are required. Because they ask the hard questions, show us either the side of life we know, or the side we don‘t. And most of all they help us learn. I chose to tag what I did because it was required poetry for me... continued...
Day 10: What is the one RR the world needs to read?
I chose this because it‘s important. This was one of my first introductions to civil rights. I was raised in a wonderful home where we were taught to treat everyone as our neighbor and to treat them better than ourselves. Not everyone was so fortunate. This book led me to authors like Ernest Gaines, James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, etc. What we forget, we are doomed to repeat.
This is such a hard question to answer! I can think of so many great answers: To Kill A Mockingbird, Of Mice and Men, Diary of Anne Frank, Shakespeare, Native Son are a few that pop to mind. But the tagged book truly changed my life. And that‘s what I think required reading should do-change you in some way and make you think.♥️♥️ #requiredreadingredo #day10
I know I‘m so late posting this! This week has been so crazy with appointments for the kids and errands. Finally found a quiet minute! Anyway, I used to hide in the bathroom and read, especially when there were chores to be done! I could spend a long time in there with a book! 😂😁 I used to love Sweet Valley High books- I‘m sure I was reading some of them! #requiredreadingredo #day9
