Came across this article on the TED website about required reading around the world. You can check it out here.
I’m unaware of there being an official required reading book in my country. I guess it was very common to read Lord of the Flies in English class, but I don’t think it was essential.
Anyway, happy to be able to check off: USA – To Kill A Mockingbird, Germany – The Diary of Anne Frank, and Pakistan – The Reluctant Fundamentalist.
Next goal: Cien años de soledad by Gabriel García Márquez (Colombia).
Any other “required reading” books that you can add to the list?
