My daughter is currently speed-reading The Grapes of Wrath.
Which can only mean one thing. School starts tomorrow.
Gotta love summer reading.
Obviously, she's a bit of a procrastinator like me, but to her credit she did finish--and complete an essay--on her other two summer reading books, The Scarlet Letter and Adventures of Huck Finn, well ahead of time.
Summer reading brings back lots of memories for me. The dread of homework during summer (so not fair), but also the surprise of finding some real literary gems, like Rebecca and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (which remains one of my favorite A.C. novels).
Did you procrastinate doing summer reading? Any gems you remember?
