This quarter I have read many things, the book that I picked for my independent reading is, Bloom this book was a biography and I really enjoyed reading it. I mostly read books about romance but I also read things like the news paper and things in that sort. I like reading these because I can really relate to them. I like getting advice from the things I read and putting myself in the characters position and challenging myself to do the right thing in their situation. I think that the news paper is very interesting and I like to know what’s going on in the world. The books I don’t like to read are about learning such as, text books or just books about things that I don’t understand and can’t relate to.
I enjoy reading the books that I choose because they fit me and I can comprehend what’s happening in the story. I tend to pick books about romance just because I like reading about happy endings and love. I don’t enjoy reading some of the things we read in class because most the time I get bored with it, and I don’t like when I’m forced to read something that I don’t like.
The books I chose to read this quarter suited me very well. They made me want to continue reading and read different types of books. The book I chose gave me a lot of advice on life, love, and faith. This made me think of how much my family means to me and how different and harder my life could be. When I read things I think that I take it to heart and realize how lucky I am and how good I have it. When I was reading this book I got so caught up in what was happening in her life that I forgot about some of the problems in mine. I felt like I couldn’t put the book down and I never wanted the story to end.
I learned that sometimes people don’t realize that they hurt others through the things they say. In my story there was a lot of gossip and the main character Lauren ignored it and lived her life and didn’t let others bring her down. I’ve had a lot of gossip in my past and reading Laurens story made me want to be like her and just not care about what other people thought or said. Reading the news paper makes me also realize that it’s a pretty big world and other people could be dealing with the same problems. There are bigger problems in this world like war and people suffering all over the world so we shouldn’t care so much about what people say or do.
I want to try to read things that I’ve never read before like maybe science fiction, or mystery. I think that I’ll enjoy it and learn many other things from it as well. I can make myself a better reader by asking myself questions about what I read and analyzing things outside of the classroom.
The hardest part about reading was physically getting my self to start reading everyday. I always think that I want to read but end up doing something completely different. I need to just sit myself down and take an hour or two every night to read. It’s not that I’m too busy it’s that I get lazy sometimes when I should be reading. The easiest part of reading is when you get to the climax and you really get into the story.
I usually pick books about girls, only because with girls there’s drama and I can usually relate to it. Yes, I put down books or stop reading the books that I don’t understand or I just get bored reading. If I don’t enjoy what I’m reading I don’t read it because I can’t focus and it just goes straight through my mind, so it turns into a waste of time.
I think that a good book is one that you never want to put down and something that you look forward to reading. A good book is also something that you can really relate to and when you get all caught up in the story. In my opinion a bad book is something that you can’t focus on and something that you forget right after you get done reading it.
I think that reading is reading no matter where it is. If I read the story on the internet and then in a book. It would have the same affect on me. You’re reading the same words and having the same thoughts so yes, I think it’s the same.
