"These all sounds like really good book and I think ill have to go to the book store to pick one or two of them up. I especially think Sum by David Eagleman sounds interesting."

"I also loved The Fault in our Stars. As of now, I don't think I can ever like a book more. I'm so excited to see the movie and I hope they do a good job with it! Great list!"

"no you did not read Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf for your research paper! I read that! You are so right it was so good. I think everyone who read The Fault in our Stars absolutely adored it! I'm still looking for books to read…"

Ready for Summer?

Hey Ning-ers! I know that I am super lame to still be posting on the Ning as a junior, but I just really like blogging and books, so the Ning is fun for me in a nerdy, lame kind of way. It's totally fine. You'll miss this next year when you're writing research papers instead of blog posts!! For me, the AP tests this week mark the end of the hard part of school, and the beginning of that exhausting stretch until summer is upon us. And summer, of course, means more time; and more time means more…See More

Nerdy Post: Books for the Summer!

I blame Mr. (R) Anderson. I really do. I used to be able to just read books and be done with them, but through all the books I've read this summer, there has been a little part of my brain thinking, "How will I blog about this? What adjectives describe the characters? Who else would enjoy this book?" Thank you, sophomore English class. So, here I am on a Saturday morning in July, blogging about the books I've read so far just because I want to. For those of you who are looking for some…See More

Amelia West commented on John Park's blog post Teens' Succeeding in life and more??
"You mentioned that this book discusses attitude or motivation. I wonder if in order for this book to teach people somehting, they have to have the right attitude going into it. And if so, wouldn't the book be pointless if the reader didn't…"

Amelia West commented on Ashley Krippinger's blog post Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang

Amelia West replied to Olivia Nortillo's discussion Does family involvement affect our identity?
"I think that family definitely shapes identity in a combination of two ways. Families all have their own way of living, their own customs, and their own values. I think that these are inevitably passed down from generation to generation in some way,…"

The Bean Trees

Posted on May 31, 2012 at 10:46pm 0 Comments

This month, I was going through my family's extensive library in an attempt to find a book that would be a meaningful, yet somewhat light read. I wanted a book that would touch me without having to completely dissect each word to find the author's meaning. I found this in an old copy of a book that stil had my mother's maiden name scribbled onto the front cover. The Bean Trees, by Barbara Kingsolver, follows the story of Taylor Greer, a country girl who has two goals in life: 1 not to get…

Unique? Or Just a Face in a Crowd?

Posted on May 30, 2012 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

As we continue on through our identity unit, I can't help but notice that everyone defines themselves in very similar ways. For one class assignment, we were instructed to create a pie chart showing the various aspects of our identity and then briefly describe what each aspect meant. Mr. Anderson pointed out after the activity that nearly every student wrote down "friends" as one of their primary categories that shaped their identity. And that's fine-- I believe that as teenagers, friends do…
