"Holy the Firm" decision

I had chosen this book for it was said to be difficult and mind blowing.  I find no interest in politics or deal with worldly affairs, so with decision was based on the thought of tying science into other subjects of life bringing insight and opening my mind to different ideas.  Science plays a big part in my life making this play favorably into my hand wanting to read "Holy the Firm" being quite enjoyable and bearable for me.

Why I Write: Arvind Gupta Plays with the Words of Science

He writes because he has something to say and there are readers.  Through his writing he had learned his passion for making toys from trash in his books.  The child's mind needs stimulates to help it learn and with science in India they can't do that in their school systems.  In science you need experiments unlike the other disciplines in literature and civics.  They must learn outside of school trough own experiments with toys using only the simplest of materials to learn for an exam.

His style is based off of education that is more important to him.  He doesnt use any fancy coatings to it, plain and simple to the point. He cares about the child and that they must learn some form of science.

"Why I Write" by Williams

Her story was about when she fell asleep and started reciting why she writes.  Which is pretty much everything ranging from emotion to religion.  She knows her writing isnt perfect and has many flaws, but still writes because she has passion for it and likes the meaning she can put on paper for everyone to see.  A lot of repetition of why she writes and gets really annoying, but its a good peice and gives purpose to write, not just to get it over with and unintelligence.
