    Daniel Wallace: Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions

    Thankfully it was short enough to read quickly. I don't think I could've endured it for long. I still think any book is better than a movie, though. I just like reading. I should give this movie a chance I guess.

    Do you read in the toilet, and what reading material usually goes in there?

    Hahaha. Hell no. Being in Korea drives me nuts. When I go to my in-laws' and have no English labels to read nor a book I lose it.

    Cormac McCarthy

    I definitely noticed that, too, about the positive message. The flame, the word of God, is always continuing. Personally I found it really moving as a father/son story. Especially when the father said "You're the best guy."

    How long should the school year be?

    Korea, where I teach, has a long school year, and I don't think it's any good. They might be good at math, but the students are definitely over-worked. I think it ruins their success as adults. Oh yeah, and their school day is long as well. The students usually have private lessons most...

    Brian's Winter - Ms. Fretwell's Class

    Maybe the girls would enjoy Julie of the Wolves. I like Brian's Winter the most because I really enjoyed Hatchet, and Brian's Winter allows it to continue. A lot of students at my school go overseas to study. English education is crazy competitive in Korea, and people are nuts to get...

    Do You Get Mentally Fatigued When Reading?

    I get tired not reading. I find the most rejuvenating thing in my busy life is to sit down with a book and a coffee for a couple of hours. The more intellectual the book, the better.

    Besides Reading what other hobbies do you have????

    Is there anything besides reading? Actually, I try to run, work-out, write, and hang-out with my sons, but by the time I'm through with work, there's not much time to do anything. Usually I end up reading myself, reading with my son, and getting fat.

    Brian's Winter - Ms. Fretwell's Class

    Hi Everyone! I'm an English teacher in Korea. I'm from Canada. I taught my students Hatchet, and I also read Brian's Winter, The River, and Brian's Return. I think this is a great idea that you are doing. I'm very interested to read your responses and to participate if I'm welcome. I teach...

    And you are working on Japanese? Wow. You're lucky. I know a little Mandarin, emphasis on a little. I took beginner Mandarin in university, but it totally didn't stick. Really hard to learn for me, even in pinyin. I remember just a little. Nin shenti hao ma?
