Yesterday in class, we talked about setting a reading goal. Including today, there are 34 days left in this quarter, approximately. You’ve got to finish your book BEFORE the end of this quarter. So set a goal for yourself. But don’t add it as a comment here. Go back to Friday’s journal, “What made you chose the book you’re reading?” Add your goal there instead. That way I can tell you’ve read my comment. I made a comment on everyone’s post for Friday. Did you read what I had to say? Set a goal like this:
I’m reading Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea. It’s 200 pages long, so I’ll be reading at least 6 pages a day. Since we have to finish the book before the end of 3rd quarter though, maybe I’ll try to do 10 pages a day. That would be awesome.
If you’ve changed your mind about which book to read, then PLEASE ADD A COMMENT TO THIS POST. Remember, you’ve got until Wednesday, Feb. 2nd, to make up your mind. After that, your choice is set. You’ve got to follow through. There will be no more changing books.
BTW: If you DO change your mind about which book you’ve chosen, then you need to go back and re-do the first journal, explaining why you’ve chosen that book. That way, all of the journals you do will match the book you’ll be tested over at the end of 3rd quarter.
