The boy with the fair hair lowered himself down the last few feet of rock and began to pick his way towards the lagoon.
This is another one that I read for school. This time it was Year 11 Literature. Our holiday homework had consisted of writing an essay on a book from a list we were given. Having never read ‘Lord of the Flies’, I thought why not? We had about a week to read the book and then write the essay. Upon seeing the size of the book (not that big in terms of book length, but big enough that I knew I wouldn’t be able to finish it in time as well as all the other homework I had been assigned), I quickly started reading. I got to page 110 (I’ve just found my page mark), and decided I wouldn’t be able to read it all and then quickly read ‘The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy’, as I knew I would be able to read it easily. Unrelated, but I got my first A+ of VCE on that essay.
That was 6 years ago now. Still yet to finish it. I have quite a few books that are half-read. It’s not because I haven’t been enjoying them, but I like to read more than one thing at a time, and I simply forget to finish reading it.
All I really remember was that I was enjoying it quite a bit, so I really should read it from the start again. It can go at the back of the queue of things waiting to be read.
