Non-fiction book

I decided to read "Outliers" because of Mrs.West's description given. I like the idea that this book is gonna make you critically think about life itself. How do we become successful and where does our intelligence come from? are 2 huge questions discussed in the book and they already get your brain fueling to learn more. Additionally, I'm really interested in learning weird statistical facts and knowing more so I am trusting Mrs.West's judgement!

Reaction to "Why I Write" by Williams

My first reaction to "Why I Write" by Williams was surprising. Williams easily captured so many emotions. I really liked how she used repetition. By using repetition, I had a better feel of her writing and understood it. Not only was she just writing about how she writes but Williams expressed many emotions towards the feelings of writing that many readers can have a connection to. "Why I Write" really got readers to think "Well why do I write?" and that is why i especially liked this reading the best.
