I read "Mandingo", not assigned reading. I don't remember...

ever being assigned a book to read in high school because as I've said here many times, I was on a business track so that I could get a job right out of high school which I did. And I don't mean cashier at a McDonalds. And I stayed with that employer for eight years until I went out on maternity leave and eventually resigned to stay home and take care of my baby.

But I read a lot on my own. I always loved to read. I must have started buying my own books after I got a job so I could pay for them myself.

My mom liked to read too and she even read some of my Harold Robbins books (ha ha...lot's of sex in his books) but she was shocked by "Mandingo". But she read and finished it anyway. lol.
