Beaucoup Buku!

9 Oct

I know this blog is about speaking English but I could not help typing such a funny title. This post is about where you can find “beaucoup buku” or in English, “lots of books.”

I know you all are very busy, but some of you have also talked about how you would like to start a book club. Book clubs are pretty common in America. Each month, a group of people get together to eat snacks and discuss the book they’ve read for that month. So, I thought: Let’s start an English book club at UMS!

On http://www.planetebook.com/ , you can find lots of different choices. For October though, I want to read Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Fairy tales pop up all the time in American culture. Little Red Riding Hood was just made into a movie and a Snow White movie will be coming out soon. Each fairy tale is short, so you will all have plenty of time to read at least a few. You can download the whole book for FREE here: http://www.planetebook.com/ebooks/Grimms-Fairy-Tales.pdf.

Let’s try to read up until page 56 or until the end of “The Fisherman and His Wife.” At the end of October, I will set up a time for us to all meet, eat some delicious food together, and talk about the book.
