Well I really can’t believe that we are already finished with our 5th week of this semester! When we first started this semester I wasn’t much of a reader and it took me forever to finish a book because I just wasn’t motivated. I have learned a lot about myself as a reader in the last few weeks. For instance, I can’t set time ahead later in the week to read. I tried that at first thinking if I got my homework done earlier in the week it would be easier for me to sit down and read, but that wasn’t the case, something would come up and then I would feel crunched for time to finish my weekly reading. But I quickly figured out that any time throughout the week if I just crack open a book I can actually read more! Who knew right? If I had an hour or just ten minutes to read I was doing it and I felt like I was comprehending the book better because I wasn’t stressing about finishing it so I could blog on Monday. I am actually enjoying myself in this class and I have been looking forward to seeing what our next reading assignment will be.
I think I will always love children’s literature, no matter my age. What I really want to start doing is make my wish list of more “mature” reading. Maybe I will look into some biographies or books that have a more historical meaning. I really just want to broaden my reading genres/age level. I enjoy the children’s literature that we have come across so far because they are very vibrant and appealing. Sometimes I feel like adult books or what have you, are so plain. If the cover of the book doesn’t capture my attention then I won’t even think twice about it, unless it is for a class. I am really looking forward to the rest of this semester and what my reading wish list will be in December.
