Fisher, Jeffrey A.. The fish book . Buchanan, N.Y.: Emerson Books, 1981. Print.

I’m going to read this Fish book because it seems like a book that I may like.. Its’s about fisherman in Seatle who try to find more life in their job. Hopefully I can get into this book faster than I usually can, and hopefully get some pages in. I know I’m due for pages. So I’m gonna try to read this short little book, and get the 100 pages I can get out of it, And make some sense of it. Because lord know’s I need to focus more.

Wada, Mark, and Lance Williams. Game of shadows: Barry Bonds, BALCO, and the steroids scandal that rocked professional sports. New York: Gotham Books, 2006. Print.

This book looks really interesting to me. It’s about baseball (I live for baseball), and its about steroids (mainly pertaining to Barry Bonds). I never really have been a big fan of Bonds myself, but I still think this may be good. I love hearing stories in the baseball world and how people are getting bigger/smaller in fame, or just plain going down the toilet.

Pages: 1-58 All Things I Needed to Know, I Learned In Kindergarten

My academic plan is for me to read maybe 60-65 pages of one of the books. So far the reading level isn’t to high for me, and I think I’m starting to actually grab hold of the books. The books are kind of making me want to learn about stories in other people’s lives that may not be quite the “norm”, whether it be a good or bad; happy or sad.

I’m kind of having trouble thinking of what idea’s I can give you, because I just don’t understand the jist of what you will give permission for me to do.. I know you’ve been talking about like reading and book reports but is there any subject I could  just talk about in my own words and just explain what all I think about it? I don’t know how to explain but I just gotta find a way thats best for me.

Fulghum, Robert. All I Really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten . New York: Willard, 1990. Print. Here’s another book that was read to me when i was just a wee one. I really have no idea why i didn’t have this up already but I’m SORRY Mr. A! anyway this is a great book because it just shows how smart someone can be and realize it just by how observative someone can be.

Fulghum, Robert. What on earth have I done?: stories, observations, and affirmations. New York: St. Martin’s Press, 2007. Print.

When I lived in Kilgore, my step dad read me this book and I loved it. I love seeing true stories, especially the super-interesting ones. It gets to me becuase I always like to hear about other people’s lives that have intersesting stories and not so usual happenings.

  • This is Actually somewhat rekated to me, becasue my dad, growing up in california, loved Motley Crue, and Nikki Sixx. From him I know much about about them and how Nikki actually died before… It’s actually pretty sweet what went on in the 80’s. But I’d like to learn more about the band and all the crap they went through to be famous, and how different people that Tommy Lee knew affected him, and his superstardome, in Motley Crue.
