For #ThrowbackThursday during the month of June, I will share my favorite books from my high school years. This was way back in the days when there wasn’t kindergarten for country kids (me), elementary school was 1st through 6th grades, junior high was 7th through 9th grades, and high school was 10th, 11th, and 12th grades.
I’m not including books that were ‘typical’ high school required reading. Some I enjoyed more than others, and I have re-read many of them since.
For today, June 1st, a book I couldn’t get my hands on fast enough after the movie came out in 1972 was The Godfather by Mario Puzo. The Godfather was published in 1969. This story opened a reading door behind which was an ‘underworld’ world that fascinated me.
This is my well-read copy. Roger didn’t mind being a helper to balance the book while I took a picture. 😉
Until next time,
