Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck This was another read for my English class’s banned book project; I read this within a group of four other students and myself. I felt like I didn’t get as much out of the book, because we had to make it last over three weeks time (one chapter between class periods) and then answer some lame discussion questions about nothing that really mattered. I can debate and analyze a book, but only when I’m finished with it. Not to mention that everyone else in my group spoiled the ending, so it was all I could do not to find out the ending until I actually got there! Read more on my blog!
