The books that Mr.Sam showed us What You Think, Think the Opposite and It’s Not How Good You Are Its How Good You Want to be I also have at home. (I gave the books to Mr.Sam for new year present) There are lots of good quotes that I wanted to share with everyone, so I thought I should make a posting about the quotes in the book everyday. Here’s one of them, it is targeted to people who are shy and don’t really socialize with people. This page is page 66-67 from Paul Arden’s It’s not how good you are, It’s how good you want to be.

Here is a quote from “Boy Overboard” by Morris Gleitzman

“Anyway,” I say to Bibi.”We should be grateful. Our house has still got a roof. Our Mum and Dad are still alive. We’ve got all our arms and legs. Compared to some people we’re really lucky.”

Write a comment to explain some of the ways that you have been lucky in your life. How similar or different is “luck” in your life and “luck” in Jamal and Bibi’s life?

Reading Books

Hey guys,

Do you like reading? I do. I think it’s fun and imaginative. By reading you can find out about many things and it also gives you ideas about what you can publish as a writer. I got many ideas from books. In fact I actually published something that was already in a book once. I also like to read because when you read you are in a world that the author has written about. If you pick a book you really like and think that your friend would like it too then recommend it to your friend or if you have read a lot of books that you would like to recommend to you friend then you should just make a list of the books. This will not only help you in remembering all the books you need to recommend but it will also help you remember what books you have read. I have a list. If you choose a book that has all the topics a.k.a. genres you like (for example: you like mystery, humor and one of the characters from the book writing in a journal) then you should borrow or buy it. If you want to borrow a book from the library and you have borrowed all the books you are allowed to and you have already read one of them then you should reserve it for the day at maybe lunch or break you should go and return the book you already read and borrow the one you wanted.

Good luck! And try getting sucked in a book.

PS What would you rate reading out of ten with ten being the highest and one being the lowest. Please comment! Enjoy reading.
