WWAY, please obtain a Brunswick County High School Required Reading list and publish it.
I suspect the list is littered with entertaining schlock. Today's school teachers are inclined to choose books with "entertainment" value rather than literary merit.
Even the school teachers themselves do not read the Canon of Great Literature. Furthermore, they do not read. (I am a teacher, and this is what I have observed first hand.) From my own experience with being around English teachers, the only books they have read are the ones assigned them by their instructors way back when they were in college.
