    Ah, 'required reading' - is there a term that is more loathed by any student than that? 'Cafeteria food' and 'double periods' might be two equally terrifying terms with some merit, but I believe that (what the title says) takes the cake.

    People, I'm wondering - what did you think about the 'required reading' concept when you were in middle school or high school?

    I don't think I've ever read one before a seminar. I just read the synopsis of the cases/books and say nothing when in class

    I don't think learning comes without reading so seems pretty nessicary

    I liked required reading. Reading is easy for me so I preferred that to doing written work.

    Stephen King, Robert McCammon, Clive Barker, and a couple (dozen) others are amazing horror. Love Neil Gaiman as well, books and comics - Sandman is such a classic

    Did we just become best friends
    (It’s okay to say no, I can handle the rejection but some incentive you’d be replacing @mikeconley11 if you say yes)

    I went to Barnes and Noble for the midnight release parties for the last 5 books, went home and read them and finished them the same day, so super stoked on them haha

    I was a little older, my mom gave me the British edition of the first book, told me I should read it - it was seriously almost instant love, they flow so beautifully
