I hope you all had a great weekend! This weekend, I spent some time with friends upstate and I got the chance to snap a picture of an object that I consider precious — a saddle. Saddles are the most important tools for horseback riding. They symbolize human control over animals. They symbolize dominance, power and authority because they are necessary to ride and use horses for work, adventure or pleasure. Speaking of symbolism, what are some symbols in your books?
CRITERIA FOR SUCCESS:
1. Username. Title of book. This weekend, I read ________ pages.
2. Copy one of your best notes here.
3. Copy another of your best notes.
4. Identify a symbol in your book. Pick out a person, place or object that has some kind of thematic meaning in the story. Describe the physical traits of the symbol. Describe its meaning. Is it a metaphor for something? For what? Why did the author most likely use that symbol in the story? Be as specific as possible.
Happy reading, happy blogging and happy Sunday!
