How have I changed as a reader?

I have changed as a reader, but only a bit. Compared to the first semester, I prefer books that are literature related now. I think this is because it makes me think of questions about certain things, and also think of answers about them. The books we [...]

Personal Response to “Lord of the Flies”

    When I first started reading the book with the whole class, it was quite interesting. I liked the idea that they all were crashed on this unknown island. I liked it because I liked adventurous stories where the characters get into the world of nowhere.
