Outside Reading: Week 2

For week 2:

1) Post a short summary of the second section of your book. This should be one or more paragraphs and be similar to a Sparks Notes or Cliff's Notes version of the pages covered. Make sure the summary makes it so someone who has not read your book might understand the reading in a conversation.

2) Find 10 "loaded words" (words used for extreme emotional effect; strong connotation words) in your reading.
- List the word
- Identify the page the word came from
- Explain why you feel the word is loaded and its intended connotative feeling
- Predict why the author chose that specific word

3) Write a journal post of your reaction to the reading for this week.

This section is pretty much the meeting between between him and posh spice. The way he contacted posh the first time was through a letter. My favorite quote from his letter is, "Dear Posh Spice. You don't know me but I have this very strong feeling that, if we could meet somehow, I think we'd get on really well." Then they met. Then they got married.
LOADED WORDS: pretend, support, wined and dined, briefly, nervously, supporter, embarrassed, shamed, devastated,critisize
