Reading Prompts

Dear Fellow Journalers,

The following are some prompts that you can use in your Reading Journal to make the entries more informative:

  1. What is your favorite (or a few of your favorite) books and why? How many times have you read it and how does it make you feel when you flip through the pages? What would you tell someone when you’re recommending this book to them?
  2. What is your least favorite book? Why are you so turned off by it? Now imagine that you are forced to watch a movie version of the book. Describe your experience.
  3. A friend has recommended that you read a book that he says is “completely amazing!” The book is anything but. What do you tell your friend and does this experience change your opinion about his tastes?
  4. You have been transported into one of your favorite books as a character of your choosing. Who are you and what happens to you during your adventures? Describe in extreme detail.
  5. What is your favorite place to read? Why is it the perfect spot?
  6. You are walking down the road and you come across a group of kids that are burning books. What do you do next?
‘Til next time,
~Sallie

Enjoy.

~Sallie

“You never have to change anything. You get up in the middle of the night to write.”     Saul Bellow

“Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”    Plato
