    Re: Book Chat

    It is great! I loved it, but it made me tear up at times because it is very sad...

    Re: Book Chat

    On my first thread, I said I would have listed House on Mango Street, by Sandra Cisneros, but I hadn't finished it. I did yesterday (I haven't been really reading it, and I just started actively reading it Tuesday), so I just wanted to tell all of you that it was wonderful!!! For those of you who may not realize, the broken English in some parts is simply a good use of tone. Flamingo, we all know you know this, but some of the younger users may not. Cisneros was basically trying write English in Spanish; in other words, she was developing the idea of the hispanic background.

    Everyone, if you have the time, at least read the synopsis.

I, myself, haven't gotten around to buying these novels (I must have forgotten after a while), but I should buy them very soon because I loved the first book!

    I don't need annotating, but I know people who find it very helpful. I do, however, enjoy being able to look back at the thoughts I had, at the time, and reflect upon them.

If you really want to read a certain book, but are having trouble understanding it, staying focused, or enjoying it try annotating the book (this helps you understand a novel more and become a part of it). Also, get two copies if you like to have a nice, "clean" copy.
