Daily Prompt Reader’s Block What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without reading a book (since learning how to read, of course)? Which book was it that helped break the dry spell?
How this prompt wants to be answered: The longest dry spell was six months. It was broken by Jane Gardam’s Old Filth.
Nothing to write there. My initial reaction to this prompt was, “Who could POSSIBLY care?”
A better prompt would be:
Write about a book you’ve read as if you were giving a book report in elementary school, fourth or fifth grade. Be sure to tell your “class” the title and author of the book.
Have you ever been shocked by a book you read? What was the book and how/why was it shocking? The more examples the better (unless you’re too shocked)!
Write about a book that changed your life or your thinking in some way. What was the change? How did the book influence that change?
