I have also tried to read Uncle Tom's Cabin, the book is sitting by my bed. I didn't know it was that boring, but eventually I will get throught it.
Currently I am reading "Pamela or Virtue Rewarded" by Samuel Richardson
For school I am currently reading Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness. I think it's very boring, but it is a very powerful novel.
In my spare ime I am reading Steve Harvey's Act Like A Lady and Think Like A Man. This is a GREAT book!!!I think every young lady should read it before going to college.
