Book club/society!

Are you interested in books? Or maybe you want to get into reading? Improve reading speed too? Maybe you’re interested in the meaning behind them? The authors’ purpose?

➳ Well, I have the thing for you! This will sort of be a book society. If you’re interested, reply with some sort of message below. List the books you like!

Fahrenheit 451

You can find a PDF copy online, if you don’t have a hard copy. (pls don’t spend your money on hard copies it really isn’t necessary <3)

This can prove to be a tricky read, but, I promise, if you read it slowly it’s actually extremely interesting. It’ll improve reading speeds and understanding the purpose behind it - a key skill required in jobs and exams.

The main point is to have fun!

So, now if you’re interested, it would be good for you to understand some background knowledge of the book:

➳ Who is the author?
➳ When was the book written?
➳ What was occurring at the time of the book? How could this affect what the meaning of the book is?
➳ Name some themes of the book?

^^ These answers don’t need to be commented, could just be something to think about^^

Once you’ve done this, go ahead and read!

You have until the 22nd of February to read up to page 10. If you decide to read past that point, no spoilers :smiley:

We will probably have a meeting in a VC on the 22nd of February, most likely around 4pm-6pm EST (time undecided still).

If you can’t attend, comment your ideas below. Do take your time!

(If you don’t have the hard copy, it would be this part:
“But she was gone–running into the moonlight. Her front door shut gently.”)

If you find anything interesting, comment it below. REMEMBER: THERE IS NO WRONG ANSWER! ONLY CONFLICTING IDEAS. Appreciate one another’s view and opinion to help form your own.

Books you’re interested in: I love reading anything I can get my hands on, but if referring to preferences, I like more early/modern era fiction that has a purpose. Ex: All John Green books, Perks of Being a Wallflower The Book Thief, Hitchikers guide to the galaxy (@BatInTheShadows) The Maze runner series, of course Harry Potter and Percy Jackson – a.k.a a diverse span
I’m excited to read Farenheight 451, in fact, I legit just borrowed it from the library
