Thomas Foster's How to Read Literature Like a Professor, is a thought provoking guide to reading literature. This book helps with understanding the “language of reading” and the importance of details. Foster opens up a new side of literature where rather than reading emotionally, you dig deeper into the grammar of the literary work to discover the true meaning.

It explains the particular “set of conventions and patterns, codes and rules” (Foster xxv) used when dealing with literary works.
The reading "Hidden Intellectualism" by Gerald Graff reflects views on being "street smart" and "book smart." He explains that society tends to associate people who are intelligent on solely being "book smart" and performing well in academics, rather than being street smart. He goes on to further explain that students perhaps can be intelligent on topics that interest them. Graff opens up the reading by giving his own personal experience on feeling torn between trying to prove that he was smart yet fearing that he was overdoing it. He was trying to prove that he learned just as much about the real world by reading his sports books and magazines as he would have if he had read the classic works of literature like most students in school.
Rationale I chose to write my autobiography through traditional prose because I think it is the most suitable medium for writing my memories in a creative way.

The traditional prose was a bit easy to write as it gave me a lot of opportunities like, writing creatively, show vs tell use which the memory box didn 't have, and also speech use. I hoped to let the reader understand my memories using a creative way, and how each one of them has impacted my life in some way.

Overall, I’ve had an easier time typing writing my essays without having any problems with the new skills I learned from the book and online
We personally like that in contrast to many relationship guides that provide lots of theories but very few solutions the What Men Secretly Want is more practical and focuses much more on the real things that you need to do and how to them right. Comes In Both Audio And Text Version The What Men Secretly Want guide comes in both e-book version and audio version. This can be a great thing for women who don't like reading and prefer listening to James Bauer's advice” on the go”. Full
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.
