Boring book

Question of the Day ~ April 13, 2013 ~ BOOK or MOVIE

During my 7th form year at secondary school we were supposed to read Thomas Hardy’s “The Mayor of Casterbridge”. I tried several times, and I was always asleep within two pages. I just could not read it.

I got into a bit of an argument with my English teacher, and said I would rather read the Oxford dictionary – so I was allowed to do that. While others in the class read “The Mayor of Casterbridge”, I read the dictionary.

I was part way through “F” when they finished.

I think I got the better deal.
