I won this award at the end of the school year, a quite well, it's the highest prize you can get (Yes I am filled to the brim of happiness but I think the award also shows my inner geek too so I don't tell everyone about it...)
So, with it I got a £15 ($23) voucher to buy a book of my choice to have my name in engraved in and I get a fancy trophy, even though the school, being recyclable obviously, takes it back a year later for my annoying and rude year below.
But this book can't be any book. I can't just rush to WH SMITHS and rush into the Young Adult section and buy about 3 books, oh no.
They have to be special books. Like ones you would use in the future for your future career (And I know what that is going to be...oh wait, let me get my crystal ball to have a look...) or a book that means something. And no, I'm not going to get Pride and Prejudice or Of Mice and Men and relive my English Literature coursework and exam all over again.
So I'm stuck. I was thinking of getting The Great Gatsby but I found out that's one of the books I'm doing in college and I don't want to write all over a special book.
So the only thought I have is Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier (Yes, yes...) but I need another one.
Does anyone have any suggestions of a classic that I could get with the money? Or any suggestions of NOT what to get out of the classics?I would really appreciate it.
