Actually favorite classic is probably Crime & Punishment...modern would be all things Palahniuk as seems to be a consensus on here (Choke and Survivor being my favorites)
I loved Where the Sidewalk Ends. I think I "stole" that from my classroom when I was in first grade and it might be in my parents' basement somewhere..
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
I'm well read and think crime and punishment is the most overrated book ever written. Good luck convincing otherwise. It is SO LAME! By all means challenge me on this, I'd be happy to elaborate and recognize much better works.
oops...sorry...I teach junior high and high school science. I taught 1st grade for a while in Houston before I moved back to Iowa.
I'm teaching 9th grade English, and a lot of my kids are reading the last Harry Potter book, as well as Walter Dean Myers' stuff. Some are reading A Separate Peace, which is something I need to read so I can teach it with Catcher in the Rye.
I mentioned Fahrenheit 451, I'm a big Bradbury fan and while thats my favorite, his collections are quite good as well.
Farenheit 451 is one of my favorite books that I had stolen from my library. I still think the irony in banning that book from libraries/curricula is the funniest thing I have heard of. I've heard his short stories are great as well.
