One great thing about being in a book club is that it forces me to read great books I wouldn't read otherwise. Sort of like school.
This gets me thinking about all the books I was forced to read for school that turned out to be actually REALLY good. Here's a list of my favorite...
Books I Was Forced to Read But Actually Really Liked
1. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
2. Jane Eyre
3. To Kill a Mockingbird
4. Brave New World
5. Lord of the Flies
7. The Chosen
8. Of Mice and Men
Books I Was Forced to Read For School But HATED
2. Tom Sawyer (first scene great, everything else boring)
3. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
4. The Scarlet Letter
I guess there were a bunch of other books I feel pretty neutral about. Although amazingly, I wasn't forced to read that many books in school. Maybe I should have been. I might have discovered some good stuff.
How about you? What was the best book you were ever forced to read?
