If you read the blog last night, I bet you saw today’s lunch coming from a mile away.
Such a delicious and easy salad to make.
White nectarine slices added sweetness to the meal.
Sadie had negative interest in the fruit. She was all about the chicken and even managed to create a ring of drool while watching me eat.
It’s a gift.
High School Reading Material
Late this morning, I read an interesting article on MSNBC.com about the “10 books you really should have read in high school.”
The article admits to omitting “a lot of astonishing books,” but the list of books included (in no particular order):
- The Scarlet Letter
- The Catcher in the Rye
- The Great Gatsby
- Pride and Prejudice
- Lord of the Flies
- Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- The Fountainhead
I was only assigned to read three of the books on this list. I read The Great Gatsby (loved it), The Catcher in the Rye (liked it a lot) and The Scarlet Letter (take it or leave it).
I read a lot of books not on the list and remember absolutely loving Of Mice and Men (I sobbed like a baby) and absolutely hating Fahrenheit 451 in high school. I started reading Pride and Prejudice as an adult and then the movie was on television as I was about halfway through reading it, so I watched the movie… and then never picked up the book again. Oops.
Question of the Afternoon
- What was the best book you were assigned to read in high school?
- What book – classic or not – do you think high school students should be assigned to read? (Maybe we’ll make it the next PBF Book Club book!)
