READING BLOG

A smart thing to do as you read your first quarter book is keep a journal of short posts on your blog so when it comes time to write your quarterly book review you have already thought it all out on the blog. These reading blog assignments are a chance  for you to write about how the reading of a book is going.

What needs to be in these posts? Here are a few ideas:

  • Write down your thoughts–after reading the opening chapter(s) of the book. How do your opinions of the book change (or do they) the further into the book you read?
  • What emotions does the book make you feel: laughter, tears, smiles, anger? Or, is the book just boring and meaningless? Write about some of your reactions.
  • Sometimes books touch you, reminding you of your own life. Are there connections between the book and your own life? Or, does the book remind you of an event (or events) that happened to someone you know? Does the book remind you of what happened in another book you’ve read?
  • Write about the characters? Which one is your favorite? Is there a character you just don’t like? Why? Do you think that any of the characters represent real people?
