Imagine an alien race is coming to earth. They will reach our solar system in exactly one year’s time. They plan to take over the whole planet and colonize it, forcing us to live as they do.
But sadly, they believe books are bad. EVIL! Once they reach the earth, they plan to destroy every book we have! That gives you only one year to read all the books you want to. Let’s say you’re capable of reading about five different books in a year. What five would you choose and why would you choose those?
As long as they name an actual title and give a detailed explanation for why they picked each book, Mrs. Sparhawk’s students can earn five points of extra credit for answering this one (but visitors to this site are welcome to participate too). You can choose books you’ve never read or books you wish to re-read, or both.
Browse through other people’s responses too. It might give you some ideas about what books to check out for the holidays!
