Constantly.
Am I the only one who goes back and looks at “Catcher In The Rye” and thinks it’s even stupider now than I thought it was in school?
The CRAP they make kids read, it’s a wonder anybody comes out with a reading habit. “Lord of the Flies”??????? “SILAS FREAKIN’ MARNER”????????

Of course the girls seem to like books involving spoiled/tormented Brit rich girls, but I loathed them. Ever wonder why boys don’t read as much as girls do?
