Daily Create #tdc3422

I read this book in high school as part of our assigned readings, and let’s just say it wasn’t my favorite. It’s not a genre that I liked to read at the time and I thought it moved painfully slow for the story it told. When we finished reading the book, I thought that the whole thing could be condensed into just a few short sentences, but instead, we had to fully analyze it. I think if I were to reread it now on my own time, I might enjoy it more, but it definitely wouldn’t be my first choice to read for pleasure.

The reason I actually picked this book is because around this time last year, my little sister was asking which books she’d be reading in English class this school year, so I did my best remember each one and give her a short synopsis. My two sentence abridged version was actually very close to what I told her, except I obviously didn’t reveal the twist ending and let her figure it out herself. Despite my not-so-pleasant opinion, The Catcher in the Rye turned out to be one of her favorite books this year, and when we would talk about it, I enjoyed the conversation, so at least there’s that.

Once again, I used Google Slides because I didn’t have very much time to spend on this Daily Create, but since I had a good example, I wanted to participate. The book cover and the skyline are creative commons images, but the text is all my own. I originally didn’t have the skyline, but I felt like something was missing and figured that would add some different shapes because the whole thing looked too square. Overall, I’m pleased with what I was able to accomplish considering I was pressed for time today.
