Thoughts for Thursday

Scholastic says you are what you read. What's your bookprint?
A Bookprint is the mark that a book leaves on our lives, shaping who we are and who we become. It is our textual lineage as described by Dr. Alfred Tatum, professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Our textual lineage is a reading and writing autobiography which shows that who you are is in part developed through the stories and information you’ve experienced.
You can visit the Scholastic website and make your own bookprint...and then you can pass it on.

The 5 books in my bookprint are

Still Alice by Lisa Genova
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The Hours by Michael Cunningham
Ordinary People by Judith Guest
Night by Elie Wiesel
(I wanted to add Columbine but for some reason it's not listed in their system.)

Go make your bookprint!
