I'm Afraid I'm Going To Have To Read One Of These

I failed miserably at reading How to Read a Book--maybe because I didn't know enough about reading to get through it.

So imagine my horror when I saw Learning How to Read Slowly Again in The New York Times (by way of ArtsJournal.com).The article discusses four articles on reading.

I may try Reading Like A Writer: A Guide For People Who Love Books And For Those Who Want To Write Them by Francine Prose. The New York Times' article says of her, "She also admits to a prejudice against using brand names in fiction. Itís the lazy writerís way of placing a character or establishing a social setting."

Have I not said that here, probably a couple of times?

I've started a list of Sassy Sidekicks of Children's Literature. Come play!

At first I thought this would be easy, but I'm going to have to think about it for a moment.

Prose actually says quite a few more things than that, and she's very much worth paying attention to. She's terrific at close reading, and atsubverting all those simplistic rules like show/not tell.

I knew the dofus kamas so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the kamas that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the dofus gold together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to buy dofus kamas more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some cheap kamas as the gifts to encourage me.
