     Consider the suggestions below an Individualized Reading Schedule.  Based on your personality and interest, I think the following books could help you personalize some of he material and help you make a lasting impression -- or, as AP says, create a more "global perspective".  

     The process goes like this: 

             1) Read the Book/Watch Documentary

             2) Complete a Work-Over

                                            A. Documentary - October 5

                                            B. Reading - December 14


       With the urgency of sports, homework, end of the season issues, new season issues, test taking, family travel, sickness, etc, I recommend you start reading these books soon:
