From a student paper (one of those seventh-grade boys!):

I enjoyed reading Anne of Green Gables. I read it because I had to, I was forced to read it, but I still think it was a good book.

He probably doesn’t realize just how emphatic the comma makes that sentence sound. (Or who knows, maybe he does.)

We just finished Anne of Green Gables, and one of the girls, an excellent student, asked if we could read a “hard book” next.
