It's been awhile since I have picked up a "classic" at the library. It was high time and I instinctively reached for The Great Gatsby.
This little book and I met back in 8th grade when it was definitely not cool to like to read anything except for The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (and that was even a stretch). Under the circumstances, I only committed bits and pieces of this classic to memory. When I reread it, I recognized the characters but had almost entirely forgotten the plot. It made for a familiar, yet exciting read. I'll definitely be making a trip to the theater when the movie comes out!
