Dear Bosses:
For your current pleasure reading book, please write and post:
A. one text to self connection
B. one text to text connection: What part of your book reminds you of another movie, tv show, newspaper article, video game, etc.

Remember: Even if you did not necessarily go through the exact situation as the character but shared the same feelings, emotions, or thoughts, you can write that as your text to self connection.

Sydney.c | 2 comments In "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" I feel like I can relate to Norah because of how she feels the need to run away from stressful situations.

The character Nick reminds me of Scott from the "Scott Pilgrim" books because of how they both play bass in a band.

Nicole S. Percy jackson and the battle of labyrinth reminds me of this indian shiw my mom watches bacause the person in the show is exactly like Nico Di Angelo. They both don't want to listen to what other people tell them... Even if it is right. My book also reminds me of myself because Percy sometimes doesn't know what he is doing sometimes. As in he can't make up his mind on what is right or wrong.

Cheyenne.s | 2 comments A. In the book I'm reading, Four past midnight, my text to self connection is when he walked into the public library for the first time and something felt off, sometimes I feel like something is wrong if I go to a new place for the first time and people I know have said bad things about it.
