Course and Contact Information



Read a book that you enjoy. Your book must be either a work of fiction or a narrative and at least 100 pages in length. It must not be a book you are reading for this or any other class. Select a book of your own choice that has been approved by your reading instructor. The book may be read at home on your own time; but your written responses must be turned in online by 11:59pm on the due date listed on your assignment sheet.

Getting Started

Give your book a chance. Set aside one or two hours to start your book so that you can really become involved in it.

Written Response: After Completing Fifty (50) Pages

Think about how you're feeling about this book. Are you interested, amused, excited, intrigued, delighted, thoughtful, curious, sad, confused, or bored? If you are seriously confused or bored, find a new book. On your paper, write about how you are feeling about your book and explain why you feel that way, referring to specific details or situations in the book or to the author's style.
