Anyway, with possible travelling goin' on this summer, I'll be doing some reading and writing during transport. Instead of reading the books that I've stocked up over the years, I am forced to read Lord of the Flies by William Golding and Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell for Pre-AP English class next year. I'm not that excited, to be honest.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not demonizing every piece of literature related to school. All Summer in a Day? A forever fave. People should design t-shirts that say "Margot just wanted to see the sun". To Kill a Mockingbird? Fantastic, and high-rated by me as evident by the six-in-one review coming soon. Flowers for Algernon wasn't all too bad, either. Those writings are shown to students for plenty of reasons. Just because there's classwork involved doesn't mean there's no way to enjoy reading it.
I've never heard of Outliers. It's the book I need to get from Barnes & Nobles, RIP Borders. Apparently it's a nonfiction book, and you know how nonfiction books turn out for me. BADLY. (Except The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat was alright.) This book is called "The Story of Success", which could either mean sort of scientific stuff or inspirational stuff. I'm not sure which is better.
Wish me luck, guys! This seems to be a pretty busy summer already. Busy in a good way, though! If I get to go to Disneyland for the 60th Anniversary, that would be the cherry on top. Have fun during your summer, fellow Americans and whoever else!
