    The people who, even though they took GCSEs, are still stupid enough not to realise that burning books is just unacceptable!

    At the end of our GCSE year in 2007 my friends and I all gathered together and chucked the books from all our most hated subjects (science and maths for me) onto an enormous bonfire! :yes:

    Nope, although Ispent the whole of Years 10 and 11 dreaming off. But then I turned the picture of a car into a stanic brum and I can't bear to destroy such art :awesome:

    I defaced all of Carol Ann Duffy's ***** she calls poetry. I hate that *****.

    Still got mine somewhere from last year - haven't seen it since the exam though. Know someone who had a massive bonfire and they all burnt their entire GCSE book collection.

    I burnt alot of books... all my Latin ones, and most (maybe all?) of my English books. Dont regret it in the slightest, I knew I was never going to read them and havent missed them at all. My uni books however, costing an average of £40 each(!!!) are treasured possessions and will not be destroyed.

    I'm the third person to use the anthology that I had... so I think I'll keep it to pass it on to the next victim.

    I think I still have it, in fact, I now have a collection of GCSE and A-level books that I will eventually, maybe, not feel so attached to and give to a charity shop :moon:

    I did!
    But this was last year.
    I loved all my school stuff except English, so I only ended up burning my diary and anthology
    Well worth it!
