i think it depends on the kind of book the choose. in my case a school book made me discover my favourite series of novels but in other moments i've got to read something extremely boring when i wanted to read another book or do sth different...
i think we should try and if we decide we could be spending our time in more interesting things, do it hahaha. but don't forget to pass the exam! :roll:

My textbooks in high school were boring. I hated them. But my textbooks in college are great. I love them so much. I'll usually keep most of them when the term is over.

Just wait and you'll see the big difference :wink: . I normally don't read books until I'm recommended or demanded to; therefore, sometimes I hardly enjoy the books, for each person has different taste. However, I must say most of my books recommended by my professors are worth reading. And I like the textbooks since they are also well chosen. A lot of my textbooks are over 100 bucks (yeah, it hurts when it comes to buy the books :cry: ), but I think the money is spent wisely 8) .

EVEN THOUGH WE STUDY IN ENGLISH CLASSES , WE DON'T PRACTISE ENGLISH MUCH .... :evil:

You don't have speaking classes? And you don't speak English with the professors?
