These New York Times Best Sellers are stimulating reading for the AP Language and Composition course. Students should read these texts thoughtfully and thoroughly, keeping a spiral-bound notebook at their side for annotations of salient points as well as their reflections on these points. The notebook should have twenty pages (one-sided), ten for each book, filled with handwritten notes in medium-sized and legible script. (Illegible script will result in a zero and large script will reduce the credit appropriately.) Students will submit their notebooks upon arrival and receive a homework grade for their work. They should also be prepared for a reading exam on the texts on the first day of class.
