    Welcome incoming AP Lit Students: 

    • I strongly encourage you to read The Great Gatsby over the summer. There is a free audio book that you can listen to here. Knowing this novel is a little like walking into your AP Test holding an ace--it is one of the most frequently recommended titles.
    • Read for pleasure. The College Board Course Description lists names of authors whose works are of literary merit, but that list is by no means exhaustive (See page 45!).
    • Check out some poetry. You can sign up to receive a poem a day to your email by subscribing to Academy of American Poets. This is a great source for modern poetry. 
    • AP English Literature
