A short book, which won the Pulitzer prize is “The Old Man and the Sea” by Ernest Hemmingway.

A 124-page favorite is “The Great Gatsby,” by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The movie version is very good, as well. That one might be required reading in English 101.

One you’ll have to read in college is “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare. The movie version by Franco Zefferilli is classic and translates well.

You already can read, so you’ll want to ponder “English 101 thoughts” while reading them. A favorite is “What does water represent?” or “When it was first shown, why did people prefer seeing the play instead of reading it?” (Answer: At that time, the 1600′s, very few people could read.)

One final “English 101 question”: “Why do books like ‘The Great Gatsby’ and ‘A Farewell to Arms’ seem to read like they are autobiograhicial (like a true experience of the author)? Answer: Because they, almost totally, are based on the true life of the author.”

Now, if you have already gotten past the above, go one step deeper and read another short book called “The Heart of Darkness” by Joseph Conrad. You may know it by the movie it inspired, called “Apocalypse Now.”

Don’t worry about being a slow reader. The more you read, the faster you read.
