AP Book HuckleBerry Finn

It is January 9th and I have just finished reading The Adventures of HuckleBerry Finn  by Mark Twain, I decided to finish reading the book because I had already gone too far and put too much time and effort into reading it. In the end I am pretty glad I did not quit because I was not completely expect miss Watson to just die, which in turn made her slave Tim free. This means that Huck Finn and Tim had been on this long adventure throughout the mississippi river and running away and escaping was all for nothing, but in the process it grew the relationship between Tim and Huck. While afloat on their raft traveling through dense fog, Huck Finn decided to mess with Tim, to which Tim became upset that Huck Finn would try and mess with him like that, this was a major point in the story for Huckleberry Finn because it showed that Tim actually cared for him, which could have been a contributing factor to why Huck Finn did not turn in Tim and claim the $800 reward that would have been rewarded to whoever returned him.

AP readin update

Hola senors and senoras, this is a little update on my ap reading... not gonna lie, been real slow about it, (The Adventures of HuckleBerry Finn), made very little progress on finishing the book itself, got to about 60-70% through, and not exactly liking it too much, but it isn't bad. Honestly thinking about giving up on the book, watching the movie, and calling it a day, (and possibly saying I read it all), but I guess we'll see how that goes. All out of things to talk about, so lets discuss the topic of animals, soft and fuzzy, small and fuzzy, energetic or lazy, reptilian or mammalian. I personally wasn't allowed to have a dog or cat, or any fuzzy rodent for the whole 15 and a half years I've been living on the third planet from the sun, the Earth. I was never able to keep one because of my father's health issues, and the disapproval of his doctors, but now since my father died April 18th 2014, just a little over 2 years ago, I was able to sort things out with mi madre, and I got myself Young Pablo, the bearded dragon. He/she/it, whatever it is, is only but 3-4 months old, so he is only a mere 8-9", but hopefully if he lives until his 2nd year, he will be a nice 2 foot long... I don't really have anything to say about the man, except he is very lazy, spending the majority of the day sitting on his hammock soaking in the heat, and eating up to 30 crickets a day. I officially have run out of things to say/talk about, so on that note, good night/morning/afternoon/lunch/dinner/whatever to whomever is reading a young man forcefully document his life once every month or two.

p.s. sorry for turning it in late ms. Mayo, I forgot about it over the weekend...

AP reading, pretty chill.

Today is November 10th 2016, and I am currently reading a book provided by an AP reading list, and that book happens to be The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain I am currently a third of the ways through with the book, and am neither loving nor hating it,  is it a good read? Yeah, but is it an amazing read? I wouldn't bother unless there is nothing else that tickles your interest. I must say that I forgot to take into account the time period in which this book is set, so going through the first couple chapters, I realized that it uses a very derogatory word to address black slaves... you know it, so no point in me saying it... so, unprepared, I was confused and was not fully shocked and surprised, but a good healthy serving size of them both. So far 1/3 way through the novel, I came to the conclusion that  the book is not absolutely terrible, and at times, a little hard to understand due to the strange southern slang dialect, nevertheless I cannot say the book has disappointed me yet, but has lost me a total of around 2-3 times throughout the book, but I guess that's why it is on the AP reading list.

Real Stuff.

Today October 14th, is the day I read "A Stolen Life" by Jaycee Dugard, this is my non-fiction choice read of this 9 weeks. "A Stolen Life" is a book about a girl who was kidnapped near her residence in 1991 by a couple who go by the name of Phillip and Nancy Garrido, who was repeatedly abused, sexually, physically, and emotionally, for 18 terrible years, and was impregnated 3 years after her abduction at the age of 14, and once again impregnated at the age of 17. Jaycee was then let free  from the abuse a full 18 years after her abduction in 1991, and emerged from her Hell hole in August of 2009, when Phillip had gone to a local FBI agent to convince him that he "had special powers", Phillip was then questioned, and ended up confessing to the kidnapping of Jaycee Dugard, and was reunited with her mother and younger sister, and ended up creating the JAYC foundation to help people who were also abused, and gave them an outlet to express themselves and seek help.

The Arch and The Butterfly

It is September 18th 2016, and I am still currently reading the book, "The Arch and The Butterfly", I had just recently hit the 70% mark, so as you can tell, I am taking it real slow, but despite my efforts of reading really slow, it is still hard for me to retain the information and the story in which I read. It is as if my eyes look over the words, I read the words, but my brain just doesn't want to process the information and remember it, however from the small bits I do remember, the book is not bad, but it is a little lack luster, it is a good book, however it just isn't for me I guess.
