Book Blogger Hop ~ Favorite Classic


The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week poses a book-related question. The hop starts on Friday and ends on Thursday. The purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers.

Do you have a favorite classic? When did you read it? High school or as an adult? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

I read most classics in high school and several more in college (thanks to my reading/social studies teacher degree…and my English minor). In high school, my favorite was Huckleberry Finn. I think a large part of that was due to my junior English teacher, Deb Ostas. She had such an exuberance and choppy personality that it made me take note of her, and I found her so interesting. I loved the way she taught us. She made us dig and honestly treated us like adults. In her classroom, in terms of learning, we were her equals and there was a transfer of knowledge both ways. I fell in love with Mark Twain’s book then, and I still love it today. It is the only book I have multiple copies of on my bookshelves.

A close second would be Cannery Row, which I read as a sophomore in college. It was a strange book to me at the time, but it got to me. I remember being so focused on reading it in my dorm room. My roommate snapped a picture of me!

I read Dracula on my own in high school, mostly because I needed a vampire read and I wasn’t finding them! Lol! One that I HAD to read for school that I ended up loving was…
