Re: Unfogging the Quidditch Pitch

I'm probably not going to win... But let's try:

*What will be the first word of the first question? In
*How many different Beaters will get a hit? 2
*Will the length of the answer to the final question be over/under/exactly 7 characters? exactly 7

Re: Fish in a Tree: Chapters 39-51

By working with Mr. Daniels, Ally gains more confidence in her school work. She even tries to complete all of the assigned work when she’s only asked to do half of it. Her confidence also extends to her interactions with other students. She didn’t notice it until it was validated by the election fo...

Re: Fish in a Tree: Chapters 26-38

More than halfway through the book is when Ally asks Mr. Daniels, “But how come I can’t read?” It takes a lot of courage to admit that she wants help. Luckily, Mr. Daniels is studying special education and knows ways that he can help Ally. The Skype scene to talk to Ally’s dad was very touching. It ...

Re: Fish in a Tree: Chapters 13-25

I like that Ally has become friends with Keisha and Albert, who are both positive influences on her. Albert has a more scientific mind and a mature way of thinking. Ally can’t quite grasp his idea that labels don’t necessarily describe the core of an object. She cares a lot more about what others th...

Re: Fish in a Tree: Chapters 1-12

Ally is very sweet and genuine, but misunderstood by her current teacher, Mrs. Hall. Being forced to write makes Ally act out and sent to the principal. She thinks all the other students view her as a dummy or a freak. At this point, no one knows the real issue with Ally. She herself doesn’t really ...

Re: Week 3 - Discussion: Abridged Books

Oh cool! I loved Flowers for Algernon! I believe I first read it in high school and then again a few years later. I had no idea that it was originally a short story. I should try to find a copy of it. There are some books that I think I would enjoy, but I can't get myself to finish because of the au...

Re: Week 3 - Discussion: Abridged Books

The only real experience I have with abridged books was when I was really bored one day and looked through all the bookshelves at home for something to read. My parents moved to the United States from Taiwan in their mid-20s, so they had several boxes of abridged classics, like Tom Sawyer and Moby D...

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

I also use Goodreads, but mainly to keep track of what books I've read. I tend to go back to the same authors a lot because I like their writing styles and sometimes I don't remember which of their books I've already read. I love that Goodreads notifies me when an author I've read before has a new b...

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

Whenever I go to the library, I always browse through the new non-fiction books. I like that they are generally stand-alone books. The problem with trying to pick out a new fiction book is that it might be the second or third book in a series. So, when I do go to the library, it is usually to pick u...

Re: How did you meet your best friend?

Thanks to former Slytherin DHoH Opal Curare, I first met my best friend in 2013. She invited me to join her SQL team, The Avengers, co-captained by... Cody Lewis! (Apparently, because I was in Ravenclaw at the time, Cody was skeptical about asking me to join their team.) After a successful SQL seaso...
