What Are You Reading?
“Right now I am reading The Canterbury Tales for my World Lit class, but on my own I am reading Captivating, which is an inspirational book for young ladies, and Message in a Bottle by Nicholas Sparks. I love romantic novels. I never liked to read when I was younger but now I love to, because you imagine your own pictures based on the book and your background!! Therefore, I think books can be more personalized than movies.” -Jessica Whitted, student and library assistant
