What books do you guys have to read for Summer Reading?

I have to read four books:
1) The Traveler's Gift - Andy Andrews
2) *Choice Book*
Little Brother - Cory Doctorow
3) Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
4) Frankenstein - Mary Shelley

- I have to write a 2-page paper on Book#1.
- I'm getting quizzed on Book#2.
- I have to keep a dialectal journal on Books #3 and #4.

And I haven't started reading any of them yet. I think I'm gunna go to Barnes&Noble tomorrow...

**I am in Honors. The AP class has to read something around four books too. The regular classes just have to read two.

I go through an average book (Medium print, 400 pages) in about 3-4 days. That wouldn't be much to me.

What's a dialect journal, btw?
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

- Basically... It is a form of double-entry note-taking. In one column, you write a quote. In the other column you write the significance.

I had to read and take notes on the first three chapters of Diplomacy by Henry Kissinger [IB Euro History 1]

I also had to read a poem and write a 6 page commentary on it [IB English 1]

I had to create a powerpoint entirely in Spanish about my favourite band/artist. [IB Spanish 6]
