    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 sure if you’re being facetious but thanks. Read it again a few months ago.

    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?
