12. I think people read to enjoy the story, and to increase their vocabulary and grammar skills. Another reason is that people read books as another type of entertainment, it is not “visual entertainment” which it improves your concentration and memory too. Some people read to reduce stress I think since it takes the person into a different place or
Davis does not have a lot to go off when it comes to personal lives. Most people in Artigat in the 16th century did not read or write, so journals are non existant. Davis has formal records, such as births and marriages, Coras ' book as well as La Sueur 's work. This leaves a lot of holes in the historical narrative. Davis does an excellent job by creating a narrative to fill in the holes left by the records.
As Caroline proceeded in reading her books, I realized she is very descriptive and talks in little fragments in order for the characters to fully develop. She also makes eye-contact with the audience and her books skip the unnecessary details. The first fiction
Even after finish reading the book, I still do not understand what it is about. I can only understand after reading the short notebook version of this book. In my opinion, this is actually a good book but it would be better if it was written in dialogues or paragraphs. I think I would definitely recommend this book to my friends because through this book, we do not only receive more knowledge in Christianity, but also gain more understanding and get to know many famous ancient people and the bad things they commit when they are alive. Whether it is important or not, it is still better to know more than knowing less.
I enjoyed reading the book more, as it was kept at a pace that was easy to follow along with. Also, the book was much more descriptive and soaked into your mind. The movie finished in a split second. You couldn’t really understand what the movie was communicating to you, while the book was written so well, that you could understand very thoroughly. The movie didn’t really show some details from the book that would help the viewer understand more clearly.
In the essays, “Reading to Write” by Stephen King, “The Joy of Reading and Writing: Superman and Me” by Sherman Alexie, “Learning to Read” Malcolm X, and “Learning to Write” by Frederick Douglas have three things in common. In each essay Reading has contributed towards the authors life leading to benefit from learning to read, allowing them to leave a legacy behind. In each essay the authors has thought their self how unlike Frederick Douglass. For Stephen King, reading has done a lot for him. King stated, “Every book you pick up has its own lesson or lessons, and quite often the bad books have more to teach than the good ones” (221).
Ruth and Isabel are both slaves who are attending the funeral of their previous owner Miss Finch. Both of them are excited when they realize they will be free once their owner dies, as stated in her will. However Miss Finch’s brother Robert doesn 't approve of this. He instead sells them to Anne and Elihu Lockton who are Loyalists currently during the Revolutionary War. Anne makes the girls call her Madam and is very cruel to them.
Also something else that makes this book difficult was that it was longer than most books I read. The next book is The Forgotten Girls by Sara Blaedel. This book was one of the easier books that I have read, this is different because it is long and a genre that I am not used to reading. I think I read this quickly and easily because it uses casual diction and it is captivating and interesting. This book is dark and not a book I would just pick off the shelf, but I think this is one of my favorites.
Each book is a portal to a world you interpret on your own and that is usually the authors goal. I believe that reading is a worthy topic of discussion for some people in this generation because reading itself is hard to pinpoint due to the vast amount of different interpretation of readers. It may be beneficial to discuss this topic for people who were never enlightened on the stigma of reading and have an intention of possibly changing the world’s idea of reading. Especially with the lack of reading that is happening throughout this current generation. Some may argue that we, as a society, are reading more than ever due to technology.
The author did a great job of making you want to keep reading. The author used a few words I had to take a second look at although most others were easy. The author used good words that described a part shorter than it could be without the word. I actually looked up a few of the words in the book and they are now included in my own
Although I could not relate because of my lack of note-taking skills, the article did teach me a few things. The article helped me see that reading a book is more of a conversation with the author and myself. I believe Alder delivers an unyielding response and has a large number of the answers for the disagreement against marking in books. Alder does not say in his article that his view is the correct tactic but is rather only presenting a proposition of one way that he has attempted and experimented with and has discovered it to be an effective way. I believe this article could be read by anybody interested in increasing their learning experience and what they take out of their readings.
That fact continues to drive me to read until I find that one book that succeeds in doing that. A book that can not only get me interested, but make me wish it didn’t end as well. Some people hate reading, others love it immensely. I am right in the middle. When I read I am not stressed by things here, for I feel like I am somewhere else.
