According to Lemony Snicket, “[You should] never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them” and writer Stephen King presumably would agree. In On Writing, pages one forty-seven through one fifty, King uses diction, persuasive, critical, and passionate tones to convey how significant reading is to a writer’s life.
According to Lemony Snicket, “[You should] never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them” and writer Stephen King presumably would agree. In On Writing, pages one forty-seven through one fifty, King uses diction, critical and ardent tones and figurative language, to highlight the significance of reading and how it benefits a writer. King utilizes diction to persuade aspiring writers to read regularly. He writes, “I take a book with me everywhere I go, and find there are all sorts of opportunities to dip in.” (147) “Waiting rooms were made for books—of course!
I remember laying under there, wishing that I was one of the characters in my book. I prayed that somehow, I could be transported to another place where I felt safe and loved. However, through all that hardship, I developed a love for literacy. I would become so enthralled in a book that I could read for hours and never once look away.
After reading the books, they opened a new pathway to relating to other people for me. Similarly, Malcolm X felt “months passed without even thinking about being imprisoned” due to the fact reading had changed his life (X, 3). The author and I related on an emotional level; therefore we are free with the newfound ability to use our dialog to
Reader ____________________________________________________________________________ From biographies to fiction, I like it all. (Well, maybe except Gothic Fiction and some Horror books. Those aren't very pleasant.) I read to learn, experience something, or just for entertainment. The first chapter book I ever read was Child Of The Mountain by Marilyn Sue Shank.
When my sister became too old to listen bedtime stories, she would read to me instead. Even though we watched our fair share of television, we were expected to spend just as much time, if not more, with reading. That wasn’t difficult, especially considering that we grew up while the Harry Potter books were starting to take the world by storm. Our mom supported our Potter mania and read the books alongside us, saying that the Harry Potter books shared a similar style to Charles Dickens, her favorite author- and now one of mine.
I started reading from a very early age, perhaps the age of four or five. The first book that changed my life was the Charlotte’s Web as it initiated me into the world of reading and inspired me to be the book worm I am today. Books were my best friends during my childhood and I devoured all the books from my dad’s library. He was more than happy to get me all the books I asked for. My father got me some post cards to write letters to my friends and relatives as a method to improve my handwriting.
When I was eight-year-olds, I was always told to read a book by my teachers and peers and I absolutely loathed it. One day I was handed an assignment, we were set off to check out a book from the library to read during reading time, which during this time I dreaded. After what seemed like hours, I decided on a Junie B. Jones book that caught my eye. After a brief reading session of one hour, when I finished the small chapter book, at once I decided to check out another one of the books in the series which lead to another one and so on. On average I devote about twenty hours of my time a week reading books.
I cannot quite recall the exact time of when I first began to read, but I think it was about first grade. The first time that I enjoyed reading was when I was in third grade. The main types of reading that I do are intensive and extensive readings. Intensive reading are when I have to read a chapter or a book for a class and I need to remember what that section or book is about, usually for an exam.
My Aunt Tess took me to Barnes and Noble several times throughout the summer, and at that time, the store fascinated me. I spent hours searching for books that interested me. As a result, I started collecting more and more books to the point where I had to get a bookshelf in my room. I enjoyed it so much that my dreams would often form into the stories I was reading at the time. I noticed that I couldn't help but be excited about starting a new book.
In the third grade, we received Scholastic magazines to promote reading, and while I hated reading at the time, I looked through it, and it one of the wisest decision I have ever made. I found a book about a girl who discovers she has a long lost twin sister who is a vampire, “My Sister the Vampire” by Sienna Mercer, and fell in love with it and all the ideas of vampirism; my love for that book led me to my love for other vampire books such as “The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod” series, that ultimately led me to my love for other books that have changed my life and taught me that I never have to be alone as long as I have a good book. It led me to meet great friends who were part of the same fandoms as me. It helped me see that as long as I try and do not give up, I can achieve. I can help protect the innocent and discriminated even though I’m an average
Novels, Fiction, Non-fiction, Myths, Legends, and Biographies are books that we should read to quicken us, to make us intelligent, open our understanding to life and being a true story or not we can compare it to our past lives and the future to come, hence I strongly agree with that books that we read should have an effect on our lives. “Jesus watches from the wall, but his face is cold as stone, and if he loves me, as she tells me, why do I feel so all alone?” Carrie Quotes. " By Stephen King. N.P., n.d. Web.
My love of science started in Kindergarten. I remember how my favorite book was about magnets. But at that age I didn't understand the science behind magnetism. I simply liked the book because when the iron fillings got close to the bar magnet, to a six year old the filing looked like a mustache which at the time I found riotous. Despite not knowing a clue about the science of magnetism, or the forces of nature I was hooked on the book and I began to read more and more magnetism-related book or at least more science related books.
Personally I love to read. The genre I prefer is horror, truly the gory kind. Probably my favorite author is Stephen King. He uses such imagination in his writing, and his writings are often ambiguous, and he uses symbols, that often have more than one meaning. I find it interesting that the culture he writes about is almost always in Maine. When reading Mr. King 's books, I can see it, like a movie in my head, narrated by a mans voice that I cannot identify. Often I find it hard to put the book down. Other than books, I enjoy a wide range of music, even opera. There is not any type of music that I do not enjoy, on a daily basis. Poetry is the writing I truly love, not only to read but to write as well. Poetry opens the mind, and makes you
Most of my literacy journey took place in middle school. I enjoyed almost every book I read for a class and enjoyed going to the library. My middle school had the best YA section I read so many books I cannot remember so I just chose ones that I remembered and
