When at first you can’t finish a book …

In our show last week, Kerri talked with Kevin Smokler about going back to the books he was assigned in high school, and finding new appreciation for the stories when he wasn't forced to read them.

We asked you what book you love to re-read, but now we want to hear what books from your past you would assign yourself to try again. Maybe it's a book you hated in 10th grade English class, or just one you don't think you truly understood the first time around. Kerri is re-reading "The Remains of the Day." Tell us what book you think deserves a second chance.
