Summer Assignment

The question of what to do with the commercial text has been raised.

Here's what I would do:
1. Choose a book that you want to read that you haven't read before.
2. Enjoy it.
3. Be able to point out specific components of the text that fit the definition of commercial fiction--you may want to write those down as September is a long way off.
4. Do not annotate it unless you enjoy doing that.

For the literary text you read, you should complete a reader's notebook entry for it.
