Didn't you read a wrinkle in time in 6th grade?

Edit: Clan of the cave bear was good too.

It is funny... I have read about "Lord of the flies" on internet today 3 times O.o .... I think I should look for it to read.

Now, I really like the books I had to read when I was on elementary and junior high, because their stories are really "catchy" ... an example is (translated from portuguese) "The lost island".

I just dont feel attracted to those books important for our literature but that are somewhat boring. Maybe the only one that I read and it is very important for "our" brazilian literature is "Iracema" - a book written when the 'romantic movement' was going on.

P.S.: I love to read though !!


O_O You were online!?

I guess so. I am really only into fiction, do not like the historical stuff for sure.
