Reading the World Reflection

I chose to write on Thiebaud's Sixteen Pies because of my mother. Whenever we saw a Thiebaud she'd point it out and tell me again how he's a Sacramentan. I have since learned he also went to Sac State. This particular work of his is worth just under two million dollars. I enjoyed learning about pop art for this assignment. As always, I jumped on an opportunity to talk about food.

Reading the Word Reflection

My readings his year were positively supplemented by the required readings for Honors 1. I had read Walden a year ago and through my paper on the death penalty and class discussion, I went farther in my understanding of his views. I enjoyed all the works we read in the class, except perhaps that of Confucius, which was still interesting. I enjoyed being able to finish some of the books and I'm looking forward to finishing some that I didn't have time to during the semester. They complemented my recent inclination to dabbling in classic books and authors and a strange ambition to read 50 books in a year.

This last goal is the object of my artifact. I use the website Goodreads to track my progress and ratings of the books I've read. I use books to expand my horizons and enjoy new perspectives. Because they can be so influential, sincere book recommendations are dear to me.

I may not achieve my goal this year, but it is only an instrument to help me access the world of the written word, which is where the importance lies.
