Friday was our last reading circle discussion with our group. I believe our discussion went pretty good. We have learned through this experience to ask questions to expand knowledge on the books instead of just going off a sheet. I was prepared for discussion but wished the rest of my group members were. Everything we talked about was good though, as we are getting to the end of our books. That means the mystery or conflicts will be resolved soon. All the little pieces are now coming together. We also talked about what we like or dislike about our books and if we would recommend them to someone.
Overall I like the reading circle idea. I feel like it is an informal, relaxed way to find out our peers interests and how they react to reading different pieces. I learned a lot about the people in my group and about different genres in books. Being in a group, they can recommend books for me to read too which is always good. I can get their opinion and see if I agree or not. I liked the post due every Monday too, and how we prepared for discussion and had all weekend and Monday to get our thoughts together.
