I dont actually read fiction. Does anyone else think reading about that things that didn't happen is a waste of time?

absolutely not. Why waste your time with things that actually happened or are happening? There's enough of that around you everyday. As a rule, I ONLY read fiction. It gives you a chance to lose yourself in a completely different reality.

It would only be a waste of time for those of us with minimal appreciation for other peoples creative expression. What makes a true story any less interesting than a made up one? Absolutely nothing, all stories have their own positives. No book is a waste of time if someone is willing to read it. But, while we're on the subject; what book is your favorite?

Poor thing your exams aren't over yet? Sad
I've been reading young adult books lately in order to rest my brain after school, but I love Shakespeare.

My absolute fave book is The Ice Opinion: Who Gives a F***. It's Ice-T's manifesto cum biography. He's an opinionated person and it's interesting to see his slant on controversial issues such as drugs, crime and poverty.

And, a suggestion, if you are willing to take it. It may not be your general pick of literature, but it comes highly recommended, A Clockwork Orange. You may hate it, but the guys I know who would like your book also like this one... you never know, maybe fiction isn't so bad.

My teacher recommended A Clockwork Orange after we read Brave New World. I might read it eventually, but I heard it was depressing.

I really like it... you just have to figure out what they are saying... theres a lot of weird made up words. But, it is good.

It's not a book, but a play, and it is my favorite of all time.
It's No Exit by Jean-Paul Satre.
I love F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Shakespeare, and Homer.

Brave New World is one of my favorite books.
For my summer project, I'm reading this book on how all books are related. It's very cool. Especially since everything seems to boil down to myth, Shakespeare, or the Bible.

Poor thing!
I just have to read the book I mentioned before and Jane Eyre, which I've already read. It's my AP Gov that's killing me.

I have to read them in Alphabetical order, and blog about them. It's all for AP English.
Then I'm taking IB Philosophy-and I'm going to have to read a lot of books for that class alone.
What's wrong with AP Government?
Ehhh, senior year will be soooo busy for me.

My teacher thinks that we should know the Constitution word by word.
It's really not that bad. It's just a lot to do in a very short amount of time. (IE: two weeks!)
You're an IB kid? My school doesn't have that.

Oh wow, that sucks.
TWO WEEKS?! I would kill myself!
No, I'm just an AP kid. I'm smart enough to be in IB, but I don't want to. I'm taking IBP for fun, actually.

I have to get the work in before Governor's School. It's actually due mid-July. Woe is the plight of the overworked smart kid who has to get all her summer assignments done before school? WOE!
