The article made me realize how much I’ve been missing out on. There is nothing like reading a book and being transported into a world of thrill and wonders. When you read a good book you are mentally and emotionally latched to the words. The imagery is so real you perceive the unimaginable scenery of the text. When you’re mind is put to test and are able to think critically, you know it’s a book worth reading.
Although the contents of the manga were slightly more mature than the other mangas I had read, the characters and setting had enticed me to further read and experience the story. As I read, the story of Berserk had captivated me. The Medieval setting and the complex personality of the protagonist Gattsu are the main reason I continue to follow the story today. The series also served as a great inspiration and gave me vast ideas of ways in which to improve my own storytelling. This reading encounter also played a role in the way in which I wrote.
The Warren-Barnhart Debate In a world where moral value is very much based on pleasure, Dr. Warren takes a stand in order to recalibrate the mind of many. Reading books is always an enlightening experience whether it is a positive or a negative one. However, though many can glean heaps of information and knowledge from a book, reading a debate is far more intriguing. When a debate is recorded in manuscript form, the reader is able to sit at the feet of two opposing sides. This reduces the amount of “straw-man arguments” and allows for the superior thoughts to be exposed.
How to Read Literature like a Professor Analysis This was a very informative book that pointed out a lot of aspects of literature I had never really paid attention to. It really showed me how important it is to find similarities between works of literature. It especially made me realize how while all three of my summer readings were drastically different, they shared common themes, plots and even sometimes character developments. The idea of a “quest” that exists in almost all works of literature was eye opening. This “quest” is present in literature by Shakespeare but also modern fiction as well.
He tells Montag that well regarded authors use crisp details to point out life lessons. Faber shows that within each book is a story, and within each story is a whole new world. Every writer wrote down details that they wanted to cherish and never forget. C. Faber wants Montag to realize how all stories are full of life. He makes it appear that stories are almost like living things.

The infomercial is appealing to our specific audience (people who enjoy literature and fictitious novels) due to the unique combination of a service which delivers a mystery box of books to the customer fast and cheaply while also retaining the thought of the customer and their preferences. The infomercial also hosts a large basis of logos as it is assumed that people who enjoy to read are generally more intellectual. Through the effective use of “scientific data”, logical reasoning, and other aspects, the infomercial appeals to the readers watching the advertisement by emphasising that there is no better alternative than the product. Besides the logos based advertisement, the infomercial has details about how everything works and pushes for credibility with the usage of generally known authors/books to make it seem like there is no real downside to the subscription given that good books from good authors are assumed to be in the mystery boxes. The infomercial uses ethos, pathos, as well as logos in different
Any time I hear of the word literature, just like others, I almost always think of Shakespeare and other American or British writers of old. For me I just really love general knowledge and so reading anything that people all over the world claimed to enjoy was something I wanted to know about in order to expand my knowledge. I did not need to enjoy them I just wanted to know about them and by reading them get to know why so many people liked these kind of books so that if I was missing out on anything, I would get to know what I had missed out on. I just liked reading broad and increasing knowledge in order for me to have an edge over my peers and most people in general. This experience was before literature as an academic course was taught
