I really enjoyed the readings a few weeks ago. It was one of the first readings for this class that I didnt have to force myself to read. I understand all the readings are on the syllubus for a reason but I felt like this one was a real easy read. It was very enjoyable too. The professionals are very truthful in everything they say. I also appreciated how Studs Terkel added the little notes like when the professional laughs or looks away. It makes it a lot more personal and more enjoyable to read. They way he rights the different articles really makes you get a feeling that you are right there in the interview with him. I also think that I will continue to read more excerpts from Stud Terkel's Working and possibly other works that he wrote. I didn't think that being in a writing class that I would have so much extra reading to do. However, I do think it is neat that we get exposed to some of these works that I normally wouldnt have been exposed to.
