“Dear Reader” Badge Requirements

“Dear Reader” Letter-Essay Badge

You can choose to earn this badge instead of writing a “Dear Mrs. Gehle” letter-essay in your reading journal.
This post must be written in the style of a letter, addressed “Dear Reader.” Your letter must be a detailed reflection on your reading experience over the last few weeks. Choose a book that you finished or that you are currently reading and discuss it. Your letter should be about as long as two pages of writing in your composition book.

Minimum requirements:
1. Address the post “Dear Reader.”
2. Write about one book that you have recently finished or are currently reading. Include the book’s title and author.
3. Write a detailed personal reaction to the book. If you need help getting started, here are some questions to think about: What did you like? Dislike? What surprised you? What did you notice about the author’s style? Will you read more books by this author? What thoughts did you have about the book’s characters, plot, or setting? Did they remind you of anything you have read or experienced before?
4. Include at least one passage that was significant to you for some reason. Type it into your post, enclose it in quotation marks, and include the page number where you found it. Explain why you chose the passage.
