Wow I read that book 7 years ago when I was in 4th grade. It was a little too advance for me back then so I didnt really pay attention to it.

"Or mabey it was just an Echo" ya it was a dumb ending...

I find it hard to read books that I'm told to read.

I've read probably close to ten books in the past two months and I chose each and every one.

As for The Giver, I was told to read it and never finished.

The Giver was a good book. Interesting concept, from what I remember. I read it back in like 6th grade, though, and being a college graduate, I don't remember the whole thing.

Right now, I'm re-reading my favorite college lit book- Welcone to the Monkey House, a Kurt Vonnegut short story collection, but am also reading James Patterson's London Bridges (I'm hooked on Alex Cross). I just finished re-reading two of my favorites- Catch 22 and Confederacy of Dunces- both are must reads if you haven't read them.

I just read it for a summer reading project for school last summer. Keep reading. It gets good actually in the end. One of the more enjoyable books our school picks. Rolling Eyes

One of my favorites too! I just finished re-reading it myself. Awesome.

You're favorite piece from the collection?

Very Happy
