    A while back Howard and Robin mentioned this book, so I was curious and looked it up.

    I just finished it - really good.

    This is probably the first time I’ve ever responded to anything mentioned by Howard on the air. What’s next, a squatty potty? A ring from Steven Singer?

    Anyone else read it?

    I’m pretty sure we had to read this in 8th grade.

    Not at all. Ever read The Chocolate War? Of Mice and Men? Charlotte's Web? The Great Gatsby? I thought these were all required reading, no?

    Encourage literacy. It's never too late.
