    That was indeed a great book. Read it my soph year of high school. For some reason the personification of rabbits was cool?



    Ever read Enders Game? That was a great book also. We did get to read an occasional cool book in all those damned gifted english classes I was in.

    The Westing Game, The Enders Game, Watership Down, all bringing back fond memories.

    Wasn't the animated movie "The secret of Nihm" based on a book?

    In elementry school my buddies and I were big into the Conan books, too. This was about a year prior to the movie coming out and we all flipped out when we heard about it. Oddly enough, my buddy's dad took us to it. I don't think he knew what to expect. We were all a little uncomfortable watching it with him.

    Hardy Boys, Encyclopedia Brown, and Great Brain series.

    I also think I've read every Peanuts comic strip ever written.

    Conan books were great. I wonder if they would still be good if I read them now. It might be cool to get a collection of them.
