and I'm trying to read a lot of non-fic by Chomsky, Kaku etc. but not getting the chance since I have so much AP homework. :(</p>

<p>I hope to finish To Kill A Mockingbird before the summer ends.</p>

<p>Started and finished since summer began: Alice in Wonderland, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, The Poisonwood Bible</p>

<p>Reading: The Road</p>

<p>Must finish before school starts: Jane Eyre for AP Lit (which I've read already), The Bible as Literature (out of print book) for AP Lit</p>

<p>Checked Out from the Library as well but will probably renew for about a month before I even start: Catch-22</p>

<p>For AP Lit:</p>

<p>How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster
The Best Early Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald
In Our Time by Ernest Hemingway</p>

<p>Gah. The book was not hard to read in terms of difficulty, but I remember strongly disliking it. (I read it last October for AP Lang.) The guy spoils the plots of certain books he mentions (Beloved by Toni Morrison, which I was about to read then, comes to mind), and on that line, seems to mention the same writers over and over.</p>
