As a reader, I always think the book is better than the movie. This weekend I saw the much awaited thriller Hunger Games!! It was exciting and rivoting although sometimes the camera work could have used some help. The shots were too close to see what was happening.

Tell me about your favorite book to movie experience and why you like it.
Have you ever listened to yourself read aloud? What if you were able to listen and watch yourself read out loud? Do you think that you would be able to see where you were making your mistakes or that maybe you would see yourself repeating the same problems that you have when you read out loud in front of others?

Before I know what a character map was, I was drawing that out with every novel that I read. It helped me to keep track of who was who and what their personality was like. Tell me about a reading strategy that you use and explain how it works.
