Every quarter we are supposed to do some big project in AP English. This nine weeks, it is to read a book about an American author and write a paper on it. I already had one waiting to be read. I started East of Eden by John Steinbeck a few days ago. I really like it so far. I'm about to start part 2. Usually when this happens, it's like reading a whole new book. We'll see what happens. For a book that is considered "literature" enough for school, this book is great!
