I read To Kill a Mockingbird when I was a young child, maybe 9 years old? And it made me sad, but I didn't understand any of the nuance of it. I read it again when I was a young adult, and it was like a whole brand new book to me. The racism, the symbolism, all of it--it was so much more than just a story to me at that point. I definitely see why it's a classic. But I haven't read it just once--I've read it at least three times.

I've never read the official Romeo and Juliet because it's to hard to read--but I have read a Reader's Digest condensed books Shakespeare version of it, Hamlet, MacBeth and Midsummer's Night Dream.

I haven't' read any harry potter books, but my daughter has read them all. I haven't read Anne Frank and it doesn't appeal to me--it should, but it doesn't.

I have read Tom Sawyer--but I'll admit to it being really hard for me to slog through. However, there is some good sarcasm in there.

I read Lord of the Flies in 9th grade for accelerated English and I wish I hadn't. What a horrid book. But it does speak to human nature and what we're capable of at our basal self.

read the Scarlet Letter in 10th grade accelerated English. It was considered racy.... what-eva....

Of Mice and Men--7th grade accelerated English. The ending was just too sad and too... wrong.

I have never read th Great Gatsby--it's on my Kindle, but i never seem to choose it.

I just read 1984 a couple of months ago.

Seems I've read more than i haven't!
