    Hi, everybody.

    I'm interested in finding out about your reading lists. I was an English major in college, but there were so many wonderful books I missed out on. What do you think are some of the most important novels to read before starting to teach high school children?

    STRONGLY recommend The Red Tent by Anita Diamant. Lifetime tried to make a miniseries out of it, but the actual novel is in my all-time top five, if not top three.
