24 Festive Tasks - Guy Fawkes Night Task 1

Rabbit, Run - John Updike

Task 1:  Burn a book in effigy.  Not that anyone of us would do such a thing, but if you HAD to, which book would be the one you’d sacrifice to the flames (gleefully or not)?



I read the first 3 books of the Rabbit series by John Updike as part of a group project in high school. There was serious talk about holding a celebratory book burning of our books once the project was done because we hated them so much. We didn't end up burning them, but we all agreed they were the worst books we'd ever read for school. If I had to burn a book, I'd throw Rabbit, Run in without a second thought. And then I'd toss in the second and third books with it.
