Good morning class,
Do you really need me to tell you how to read?
Seriously, you want me to instruct you on how to read a book?
Ok then class, I will instruct you to the 4 easy steps then, now pay attention.
Move on to the next book.
See that was pretty dam easy class, don't you think?
But remember two things class,
Depending on the type of book,
Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested. –Francis Bacon
The last element, but also the most important, class is that,
“Marking a book is literally an experience of your differences or agreements with the author. It is the highest respect you can pay him.”— Edgar Allan Poe
Now, class, you have homework tonight, can you guess what it is?
Ok, it's very easy and when you come back tomorrow, I expect you to have executed a very elementary task.
I want you all who read this entry to heed Mr. Poe's quote and give me your literal experience of this class today and enter your comments on this blog you read.
That way I will perceive what you learned this fine school day.
Thank you, class for your attention
