Discussion: Do You Use Accents in Your Head while Reading?

This is a post I've been thinking about writing for a while because I've never come across any other discussions about it (though I'm sure they do exist somewhere), and I am genuinely curious to know what other people do when they come across characters with foreign accents in their books.

Discussion: What Were Your Favorite and Least Favorite Required Reading Books?

I think we can all agree that we love reading novels. And part of school is having to read novels. So it seems like that would awesome for us bookworms, right? Well, no. At least not in my experiences. While there were a few required reading books that I loved, I hated or felt apathetic toward most of them. I think most of them just weren't to my reading tastes, but I do wonder if I might've...
