I remember reading the great gatsby too.  Our teacher wouldn't let us watch the movie because she said we'd be cheating!

I think I vaguely remember reading North and South...

I went through all 15k posts and those 2 quotes I found were the only ones so I guess that would make it "everytime".  Feel free to go through all 15k posts and verify by quoting them all.  You need to quote them all to verifying prove "everytime".   Please verify that Im wrong.

I don't look upon classics too fondly. For one thing they remind me of long, dull papers full of asinine critical analyses we were forced to write. For another, they were usually long and tedious to get through. But my favorites are mostly the ones I found on my own such as Jane Eyre and Pride & Prejudice. Two notable classics that I had to read for school that I didn't mind were the Great Gatsby and North & South by Elizabeth Gaskell. There is actually a great adaptation of North & South starring Richard Armitage (the actor who plays Thorin in The Hobbit). You can find it on Netflix.

I hate reading. Thank God for Sparknotes and movies for getting me through school hehe.
