I hated most of the reading in high school, but I love to read now. I read A Tale of Two Cities in high school I was bored stiff. I read Moby Dick when I was thirty years old and thought it was a good story and character study buried in a study of whaling terms. I read Fahrenheit 451 in high school and liked it. I read Of Mice in Men in high school and liked it. I read Cannery Row this year and thought Steinbeck was a genius.

I like to think I read a good variety. I would want my kids to read a good variety of books that talk about the human condition. There are newer books in more modern language that can do that.
