Bah. I always read every reading assignment I was supposed to so all these other kids should too. It's about time they're held accountable. Although, I will say I don't get the headline. What's the connection between this story and reality TV?

I hate to say this, but I never read a single book assigned to me in my entire run of high school English class. Just followed the in class discussion on each chapter and bullshiatted my way through the exams. I also used to make up books for my book reports. It wasn't because I didn't read books recreationally, I loved sci-fi and fantasy. I just found it really thrilling to make up an author and a novel and get away with it. Usually our book reports came in threes so I'd write one book report on a book I'd actually read, and then I'd write two book reports on phony books by imaginary authors.

I don't think I'd be able to get away with that now a days with the internet. But as a small town boy if you had a good imagination you could get away with it no problem.

"Maybe the course is too easy and I need to challenge them a bit more," Mr. Guardia said. "Or maybe the textbooks are not as good as I thought."
