What I'm Reading List:
Make sure to have this document live on your notebook so I can see how you are keeping up with your reading. Remember....
1. You need to be reading something
2. You can put down a book down if you do not like it, but you have to pick a new one.
3. If you finish reading one, pick a new one
4. Bring your book every day to class.
Books I Want to Read:
Keep track of other books you would like to read. These can be ones that were made into movies you liked, or by an author you have already read, or one you heard a friend or someone else talk about.
Use this list to help you if or when you need a new book, either because you finished the last one you picked out or because you didn't like the last one. Keep this handy so you always have something new to turn to
