If I had any advice for other readers I would tell them to try to enjoy reading because it will never go away. In our daily lives we read all of the time. Maybe it may not be a book, but when we drive, we read road signs or in school we read numerous things to figure out an assignment. Now if I had advice for other writers I would say just write down what 's in your mind. Don’t over think too many things when writing.
I thought it was stupid having to read aloud, practicing on how I say certain words, having to start a sentence over until I didn’t stutter, re-reading the same page over and over until it didn’t me the longest time just to finish one page. But practicing every day, took a lot of patience for me and my mother, and it was all worth it, I don’t have trouble reading, it doesn’t take me long to read anymore, it easy to pronounce and spell words. Working out the issues I had with reading helped make it easier, and made me love to read ever since
Most people think of reading as a productive activity, but when I remember the times I sat alone at lunch to read or the times I skipped class to finish my book, I think of reading as my greatest failure. Society does not condemn reading addiction because people spend so much time encouraging people to read. Common addictions like drugs, alcohol, television, texting, and video games all carry a negative connotation because many understand that such addictions can have an adverse effect on life, but reading addiction carries no such stigma. Similar to others who face addictions, I tried to escape all my problems and build a perfect utopia in my head. Ever since I was a child, I loved reading.
I have personally always disliked writing, especially an assignment like this one that is so creative and open to one 's own ideas. They cause me a lot of stress. I like to be given a topic or specific writing instructions when it comes to writing an essay. I like structure, facts, and ideas that I can use, or maybe it’s because I don’t like writing about myself. I really don’t know, but what I do know is that writing to me is a way to express yourself.
I have always found writing hard but now I enjoy it more. I 'm not going to lie and say that it 's easy for me because it 's hard. I get lost with my thoughts a lot. What I say sounds way better then when I put it down on a paper. I have been wanting to write a small book of something.
Or it can fulfill the void in your life that reading about a character doing just what you are lacking can fill. One of my pet peeves of reading books is when you are forced to read a book that you end up hating. I am fairly efficient at being able to find the good in books that we are required to read and am able to enjoy most of them. But every once in awhile, there is a book that I am required to read that I cannot stand. This is a pet peeve of mine because try as I might, I can’t find anything I like about that book.
Her mother and father both worked at publishing companies, and she was never without a book nearby, just like me. We could talk for hours about the books we read, and even had contests surrounding books. But the other people in our class didn’t understand at all how we could like books so much, especially books about magic and other worlds, stuff that our school was strongly against, to the point of banning them. So people thought we were pretty weird. Luckily, we had each other to be weird with, plus, the characters in our stories.
Kidwatching is an interesting and helpful strategy for me to understand my focus students’ literacy behavior. This observation strategy is an ideal way for me to get to know my students’ literacy tendencies and interests. There are many students who do not feel comfortable with their reading and writing skills, which causes the students to lack interest in all literature. After watching and interviewing my focus students, I learned that not all students like to read and write. Additionally, I learned that I must always be flexible in the classroom because things may not go as planned and I may have to quickly adjust.
Something that I think about a lot is searching for books. Not necessarily finding a book to read, but the process of searching for one in a bookstore, online, in the library, or any other place one may go to find a book. The amount of variety and uncertainty that I observe in people when they go to search for a book is fascinating. It seems to me that most people don’t know what they are searching for when they go book hunting; and those that do know what they are looking for rarely leave with what they came to get. For example, someone will go to find a book, perhaps because they are bored, but they won’t have a specific genre in mind.
In many aspects, the internet has shaped society today. Not only has the internet helped people with connecting to family and friends, it has also made it easier for people to do research ad or look information up. The internet can be a great investment however, nothing is worse that what it can do to another person. Bullying has become the internet’s worst creation. No one is safe on the internet, which is a huge problem.
