I am a reader. However, required reading for a class has always been like pulling teeth. Although sometimes I will find that I enjoy a book from a class every now and then.
I believe the first book I had to read for school was The Twits by Roald Dahl. Which did turn out to be my favorite Roald Dahl book? It ended well for me but does it discourage others from reading for pleasure?
I wouldn’t spend my free time reading a book I didn’t enjoy if it wasn’t for education purposes.
I understand the need for reading in school and it will be the only introduction some children will have to read.
I suppose it’s a difficult question to answer and it may depend on person to person.
I’ve been thinking about this since returning to college and starting to read Dracula.
It’s not the most thrilling read in my opinion. Hopefully, it will get better.
Thanks for reading
