Don't forget to sign up by April 7!
Book-of-the-Month: Sign up for your book by April 7. Be half-way through reading it or so by April 18, and bring it to class all that week and the next so you are prepared to do some in-class activities with the book. The book for this time should be contemporary realistic fiction: a novel that could happen in our time, but is a fictional (made-up) story. Select a book that has 100 pages or more and that you have not read before.
