I was cleaning up a bit today, and found these.
When I was in middle school, and on into high school, I read. A lot. And my schools had a habit of rewarding or at the very least tracking students’ reading habits. I picked up on that for the longest time.
Above are two index cards that I used as bookmarks throughout two academic years. I wrote the names and authors of all the books I’d read during those years. These bookmarks are from high school. I didn’t get to read quite as much then as in middle school. My middle school ones often got so full I had to staple a second card to the first for more room. The fronts and backs of the two index cards are shown above. I did not alter the colors – I wrote in Crayola fine-point markers on these particular cards, back in high school. Not the best of choices, considering how hard they are to read now!
I’m currently reading the Song of Ice and Fire books by George R. R. Martin. Finally finished the first book, “A Game of Thrones,” today and started the second, “A Clash of Kings” I believe is the title.
Yes, I also watch the HBO show. It is incredibly well-adapted from the books and beautifully done.
