Book Talks

 

This is a place to describe books that you have loved and get others to read them.  There are a couple of rules though:

 

  1. Don't provide too much information.  Keep your audience wanting to read the book.  Don't give away the ending!
  2. Be simple.  Don't bog the reader down with too much information.
  3. This should be like a commercial for a book -- short and sweet and get the reader to want to buy the book.

 

 


 

These are a few of my all-time favorite books.  Have you read them?  If so, let me know what you think!  If not, they are all available in the Avon High School Media Center.

Click on the files, then click on Save.  Go to the location where it is saved and double-click on the file to hear about each book.
