I just stumbled across this blog meme and thought it sounded like fun. It also got me to finally get another post up on here. MizB of Should Be Reading hosts this fun way to learn about more books. Go check it out and then play along.
I'm currently reading two books - the first, Aristotle's Poetics for Screenwriters by Michael Tierno, was a recommendation of Douglas Clegg. The second, Charlotte's Web, by E. B. White, is what I'm currently reading with a small group of 4th graders. (I've never read it before.)
Aristotle's Poetics teaser:
"The brief images of Harry killing the four people are used to jar his memory (recognition entailing discovery) that he's searching for himself and is the evil Johnny Favorite. Thereupon he undergoes a reversal of fortune (I'm going to Hell)." (pg. 90)
And Charlotte's Web:
"It was still only about four o'clock but Wilbur was ready for bed.
'I"m really too young to go out into the world alone,' he thought as he lay down." (pg. 24)
Now, hopefully I'll remember to do this again next Tuesday!
