My favourite most recent reads, anyone else like these?
The one thing I would say about books is that what you read is such a personal choice. At University I read all the classics and it is only now many years later that I feel I can say that I don't like them all. I hate Hardy, love Austen and Shakespeare but would rather not have to read Milton or Larkin ever again. As to forcing young people to read old fashioned, irrelevant texts that I found boring as a pupil ... if we want to encourage young people to pick up a book let it be enjoyable like HP, Twilight or something by Zephaniah. Let me know if you have read any of these or have any suggestions for me. TTFN.
