I know. But maybe some other people are wondering now... "Which two books?"



If they are wondering THAT, then they must be your spammers venturing into the Forum arena

Quoting duda:

In my country we just couldn't finish grammar school without reading ALL classics and the most of contemporary writers... starting from 'Iliad' and 'Odyssey' and finishing with the last winner of Nobel prize... .



Of course I had to read classical literature for secondary school, but Dutch ones. And Nobel prize winners were not compulsory, they had other measurements: I had to read books from the middle ages, Renaissance, era of Voltaire (don't know the English word), between 1850 - 1940 and after 1940. But all Dutch writers. And Iliad or Odyssey was only when you had Greek lessons, which I didn't.

The books I read then are absolutely not my favourites, I hated reading them!



If we were reading only Serbian classics, we would stay handicaped not knowing anything about the treasure of world literature. (Although our own literature is rather capacious, giving the fact it exists from the end 12th century.)

Some pupils didn't like many of the books we had to read, but we've got a habbit of reading QUALITY literature, they made us curious to discover other world classic, not only the ones we had to read. And, as I said before, we were proud to discuss good books with our friends, instead of other kinds of entairtenmant.

It was not easy every time to read the book you didn't want to read, but later we never regreted! This became a part of our common culture.

The same thing with learning foreign languages: I was desperate when I had to learn Russian in school. But now, after reading most of mastepieces of Russian literature in original, I would never change Russian for any other language in the world!

You had the point!

And we wrote essays and newspaper articles too. Though I admit that many of our schools didn't stimulate rhetorics. Anyway, I know only a few people who don't love reading.

Totatlly true... i remember the times that i was reading the first book - Fellowship of the Ring- of Lord of the Rings, Tolkien was just describing a garden in just 40 pages or more... i got really bored... while passing those parts... but after finishing the book.. you are just king of the world, you have the ring to carry to Gondor!

Reading book is really important... whatever you are going to do... to get a viewpoint, to get vocabulary for writing and a style of speech maybe or writing style...
We have to read...

EXACTLY!

Taking care, of course, of WHAT do we read. Reading Dostoyevski and reading Daniela Still could never be the same

I dont know - even reading Danielle Steele is better than not reading at all! At least it develops a reading habit!
