It's Teen Read Week
Monday began Teen Read Week. To recognize it, I've tried to remember what I was reading as a teenager. Truthfully, apart from a few things, I'm not sure it was a whole lot different from what I'm reading now. I read Amy Tan, Anne Frank, Anne Rivers Siddons, and I liked most everything that came my way in my English classes. Somehow it seems easier to remember what I was reading when I was about 10 and younger. Wonder why that is? My guess is that I did most of my reading for class and not for fun. And, what I like to read hasn't changed much. I was reading many of the same kinds of things in my teens as what I'm still reading now.
