When I was in high school, one day my English teacher handed out a reading list for those who were headed for college. From that day on every book I read HAD to be on that list. Later I acquired 2 more lists for college bound students. Then every book I read HAD to be on at least 2 lists and if it was on all three, all the better.
So I read the classics, and read and read. No wonder my children and now my grandson love to read.
Just curious whether anyone else restricted their literary menu in a similar fashion. Well?
