Huh, well don't I feel odd, because I thought Macbeth and A Raisin in the Sun were cool.

To be honest with you, I think a lot of it is there's so much information that kids have to absorb now in so little of a time that reading for pleasure is a foreign concept to many. I do think schoolchildren are subject to information overload, much more than when I was a kid. And I guess it isn't cool because for many it's hard to separate reading from the "obligation," if that makes sense.
