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.

M. Straka, who is very obscure and leads to more questions than answers. Each story could also be seen as a response to moments of book history. For S., the way the story is presented is incredibly experimental, especially through its reliance on physical inserts to allow the reader to become immersed in the story. Through its innovative approach to writing and reading, S. could be seen as postmodern.
Other things that intrigue me about anything involved with Literacy it is definitely writing. I enjoy reading people’s summaries of books written by other people, especially when I’ve already read the book it’s nice to see what other people’s views are on books and their opinions.
