The Giver - Read. I read this when I was in middle school and I didn't like it then. So, I thought, with the movie coming out, I'd give it another shot. Still leaves a bit to be desired, but the dystopian genre always makes me think.
Of course anyone who loves books buys more of them than he or she can read in one fleeting lifetime. A good book resting unopened in it's slot on a shelf, full of majestic potentiality, is the most comforting sort of intellectual wallpaper.
