Introductions - Fall 2018

I inherited this class from Professor Scarlet Leslie-Lewis, though it was originally created by February Fortescue, ...

Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe

I'm definitely a fan, but lately I've been falling behind since I haven't had time to go see the most recent movies. I think that this summer would be a wonderful time to do a catch up like Shiloh mentioned!

Re: Week 3 - Discussion: Abridged Books

I have an interesting story about reading an abridged edition of a book. In my Spanish class my junior year of high school we read Don Quixote de la Mancha in Spanish and it was abridged though none of us knew it. Because of the fact that it was in Spanish, I didn't even realize it until afterwards ...

Re: Week 2 - Discussion: Do Audio books recreate the Magic of Communal Storytelling?

I also agree that there are certainly situations in which audiobooks are very handy and that a narrator can make or break if a person gets into an audiobook. I really like what Kendra and Vanessa said about recording your own audio books for loved ones and think that receiving something like that fr...

Re: Week 2 - Discussion: Do Audio books recreate the Magic of Communal Storytelling?

While I think that there are some very talented voices out there telling us our favorite stories, I agree with Maxim that audio books don't quite recreate the magic of communal storytelling. When I was in fifth grade, one of the fifth grade teachers was known for his love of storytelling and when we...

Re: Week 1 - Discussion: How do you read?

I also love using Goodreads to track my reading, but like Scarlet agree that having a large number of books on my to read shelf is overwhelming. I especially love that there are book giveaways there, and while I haven't won anything yet I'm determined to keep trying. A lot of users also make lists o...

Re: Week 1 - Discussion: How do you read?

I usually really enjoy reading series, but lately I've been getting more and more interested in reading stand-alone books as well. I will admit that I don't reread as much as I'd like to, and there are definitely a few books that I've loved enough to reread so there's little reason to not return to ...
