What are YOU reading? Let's Booktalk!


All right, folks-- let's share. What are you currently reading? It can be a class novel or a free time novel. I'm curious! What do you like or dislike about it? Are the characters well-rounded? Can you guess what type of music they like or what their favorite movie would be? What is the setting? Is it well described to the point where you can see all of the details of the time and place? How is the action of the plot? Is it fast-paced, or kind of dragging? Give details! Answer any to all of these questions, and come up with your own stuff to share. Invite responses and lets get a conversation going!

I'm currently reading a novel in English called Flowers for Algernon. The author wrote it in a very unusual form. He wrote it in forms of progress reports written by the main character, Charlie. It's mainly about this 30 year old man, who is retarded. He agreed to go through a brain operation that might help him become smarter. The progree reports really helped me see his progress from before the operation, when he was retarded, and after the operation.

i am reading a book for my english francine green. i think that it is a great book so far but alot of people dont think so because it is... um... how do i put this nicely,... not for boys. but i am a girl so i realy dont care. anyway, it is about a girl (franciene green) who lives in hollywood. it takes place during the early 1950's so alot of people are shaken up by the war that just happend. including francine.

I am also reading The Loud Silence of Francine Green, like maymay357. I like the book. I think some of the boys dont like it, but I think that there is only one sentance boys dont like a lot about ...cleavage. Whatever. It has a good plotline, and I was so sad when this person died. (keeping him anonymous in case you want to read it)It is a good book, but I think there are some better things that are more my style.

I also thought that Francine Green was a girl book, but it wasn't to bad.

Hey nathan!
I'm not sure how you hyperlinked your name; we can look at it together some time if you like-- just come find me in the library!

I'm thinking lunchtime booktalks will start up after break. That gives me time to get basketball organized (I'm coaching the girls right now) and get my act together. I've got an idea about the forms I want to use and how I want it to run, so I'm getting there!
