My daughters are your age. Maybe you're "transgendered" if those stories bothered you.

See, this pisses me off. Because if you hate reading and love the legend of zelda, how do you know what it's about? YOU'RE READING ALL THE F**KING TIME.

Dude, I read books like Mistborn, the Hobbit, The March of Folly (a history book, mind you), and many, many others. I like reading. I'm pointing out, however, why students THESE days will hate reading due to the English Canon. Like I said in another post, I'm 30, and if it weren't for my brother reading me the Hobbit when I was, what, seven years old, then I think I wouldn't like reading books. They made us read "Where the Red Fern Grows" in Elementary School! That's not something a young 6-11 year old should read. :/

No, I'm kinda talking to anyone who thinks that way, it wasn't directed at anyone in particular.

At least See Spot Run doesn't have a implicit **pe scene in it. I remember I read a 'classic' called "Orange" ... something--I cannot even remember the name of the book--in high school. The two main characters, female Spanish immigrants, get **ped by a couple of clowns. Again, it's not excitedly stated or described, but the **pe is obvious. I also only remember the line "I love you, spanish girl" from that book. Same scene. X.x;

No... it was... I think the title had either the words related to a tree or a house.

Okay, because there was a **pe scene in both the novel and the film Clockwork Orange
