A Book I Read Before I Started School
I Have a Turtle by Kathy Bing
Legend has it that I could read this book before I started kindergarten. Truth is, my grandmother had read this book to me so many times that I probably had it memorized.
A Book I Read in Elementary School
The House on the Cliff by Franklin W. Dixon

A Book I Should've Read in School, But Didn't

A Book I Read in High School But Don't Remember
Hiroshima by John Hersey
This was an assigned reading for a history class. I know what happened at Hiroshima, but I have no recollection of the details of this book.
A Book That Took Me Back to High School
One of the things that made this book so stinking addictive was how it transported me back to my high school years. When I read this book, so many memories of that time period, including my first boyfriend, came flooding back.
A Book That Took Me Back to College
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

A Book That I Use A Lot in Speech Therapy (in an elementary school)
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
I've listened to the passage about the "cheese touch" dozens of times and I still crack up!
What book(s) do you associate with school?
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
