Things That I Hate

Required Summer Reading

Don’t get me wrong, I love to read. Just not when I have to waste my summer reading a boring book in my least favorite genre. Summer is for relaxing and no schoolwork, right? Give us a break after the stressful school year for once.

  2. The summer is not for relaxing; it is for planting and harvesting crops on your family’s farm.

  3. Jonathan, this post was about required summer reading. As in, you will be tested on this book when you come back to school. Modern education: I'm shaking my head at it.
