1. A Tale of Two Cities
2. English, if I don't read it, I'll fail.
3. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of dispair,we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way--in short, the period wasso far like the persent period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only." That's the first sentance and paragraph.
4. 92, behind the rest of my class.
5. BORING!!!!!

1. author + title - Inkspell by Cornelia Funke
2. why u decided to read the book - I had read Inkheart and liked it, so decided to continue with the series.
3. first sentence in the book - "Twilight was gathering, and Orpheus still wasn't here."
4. page u are on - 334
5. what u think of the book till now - It's not as interesting and quick-paced as Inkheart. Feels very heavy in terms of detail and description.

1. author + title - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire-By (hopefully you already know)- J.K Rowling
2. why u decided to read the book - I had forgotten most of the details..i had read this book before in grade five...and it was so action packed.
3. first sentence in the book-The villagers of Little Hangleton still called it 'the Riddle House', even though it had been many years since the Riddle family had lived there.
4. page u are on -515/636
5. what u think of the book till now -I think the book can't get any better that is why i am on page 515 and have started the book on Thursday night. I just hope the last book, book seven, is the perfect finish to the series.

1. author + title romeo and juliet- william shakespeare
2. why u decided to read the book- english class.. if i dont i fail( cant have that happenin, now can we?)
3. first sentence in the book
Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
Whole misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife.
The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,
And the continuance of their parents' rage,
Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,
Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;
The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

4. page u are on- act 5 scene 3
5. what u think of the book till now- it is romantic so if u like that crap, u'll love it.. i love tat stuff but since the language is creepy (as u can se in the first sentance/prologue) i caant realy understand it



i no its a play but it is also a book thing.... its in my english book so w/e Tongue
