PostSubject: Thoughts on how to break this book up   Fri Jan 12, 2007 3:28 am

Hi everyone,

I started Gulliver's Travels and it is very enjoyable. I think that there are four parts we should break up the discussion into four parts. Each section is an adventure with a theme. We could micro analyze it, but I think when you start each part, you won't want to put it down. That's how I felt at least. So I will start Part I. If anyone wants to do it differently, let me know. I guarantee this will be a vacation from DQ and PP.

Enjoy everyone.

I haven't started the book yet, but breaking the book into the four sections sounds good to me. Thanks for getting it started for us. I just need to finish up my second and third levels of inquiry, and then I can get started.

Mom I will send the book ASAP, sorry that I forgot this week.

Food for thought: maybe while reading we can try to characterize each of the four cultures/islands that he meets.

This might open someones eyes to a different aspect of their culture.

I haven't started the book yet, but that sounds like it would make for interesting conversation.
