  Billy's Answer

Wow! Great Question! Let me think about it for a second . . . Probably when I was in the 6th grade (1993 - 1994), where I was forced to reread all the books for "Literature" (a.k.a. the recommended books for sixth graders at that point in time). The teacher would ask if anyone has already read the title prior to assigning us to groups and I was the only student to raise their hand every single time. (Yep, we had to read aloud in groups of three.) I had this exact same problem in a "Literature" class in high school, but, only then it was a completely different story. I had already read the exact same books for a Junior High  English class.

  1. Great answer, Billy!!

    We read classics in high school, but I can't remember what we read in junior high school.

    And...I can't believe we were allowed to read some of the books we read....especially THE SCARLET LETTER.

    Do they still read THE SCARLET LETTER in high school classes?

    1. I have no idea what books are allowed in high school classes today. The Scarlet Letter is probably considered a "banned" or "challenged" book in schools. I read it during my Freshman year of high school. As long as the story didn't contain a mythical plot (Iliad, Odyssey, King Author, etc.), then the students didn't have to have permission from their parents to read them. At least that was the way it was when I was in high school in the late '90s.

    2. Ok. Thanks.

      No parental permission needed when I went to school. 😍

    3. My school was strict on a few things. All male students had to be clean shaven. Females students couldn't wear skirts unless they were cheerleaders. When it came to literature, if the story was considered "mythical" then you needed parental permission because the school didn't want to offend anyone's religious beliefs, which was weird as public schools aren't supposed to included anything religious to begin with.

    4. I graduated before you were born. LOL!!

      We were not allowed to wear slacks. 😊 We all had to wear skirts or dresses. Times have changed.

  2. When you were getting into books, I was getting into having my first child. :-)

  3. Oh nice! I remember a little about the "summer recommend reading" for the next grade. Not too many of those titles interested me, but there were always a few that I had read! I was usually one of the only students who enjoyed the SSR time that was given in every English class!

  4. That's a great story. I sometimes had a similar thing, especially when it came to studying the classics and Shakespeare in high school.

  5. This is my first time joining the Book Blogger Hop :)
    I actually had problem with the list of books that we were given to read for school, as I usually didn't like those books, but I still made myself to read them, however, I mostly chose to read the books that interested me, in earlier age those were fairy-tales, fantasies and mysteries, then I had a thriller phase when I was about 12-14 (I read my dad's books), but in high school I preferred contemporary romances. Now I read again mostly fantasy and also contemporary romances.
