Choose one of the novels below. The novel should be completed BEFORE the first day of your sophomore year.  An extensive project will be assigned, based on your selection, on the first day of school. You need to have an unabridged hard copy or digital copy of the book to use the first week of school. If you have any questions over the summer, contact Mr. Talas at

PRE-AP English II Honors: Okeechobee High School 2020 Summer Reading List (Ms. Davis):

You will be reading two-thirds of Bulfinch’s Mythology - unabridged and unedited. The sections to read for the summer reading are “The Age of Fable” and “The Age of Chivalry”. I have attached the amazon link to the full, unabridged book  here.  You will need a hard copy/digital copy of the book with you the first week! You will be able to store them in the classroom, but you will need them for our first week project. If you have any questions, contact me at this email:! :)
