Storyboard Text

  • Sometimes as people read they leave their ferocious comments along the borders of the book, writing this like "Nonsense." "HA!", trying to imagine what the person might've looked like when reading a certain sentence.
  • WHAT???!!!!
  • Students just tend to leave little lazy splurges of comments on the borders consisting of mostly "Irony." Imagery." "Metaphor."
  • Is this irony?
  • But there are also moments when a reader really connects and gets excited about the authors writing. Thus words like "YES!" "MY MAN" get written in the margins.
  • YES!!! I FEEL YA!
  • If you have managed not write Man Vs. Nature in the margins its time to make a big step forward. We've all took the borders as our own and filled it with our thoughts and comments to the author, instead of lazily lounging in a chair skimming though the pages.
  • Even way back when the monks would put their own comments about the pain they are in from constantly coping the Gospels, a bird singing near by, or the way the sunlight hits the glass. you haven't read until you've read the furious scribbling of authors in the greatest novels written.
  • One hot summer I was reading and I cannot explain the lonesomeness I felt when I flipped the page and saw the writing of a beautiful girl, whom I would never meet, and a few greasy stains next to "Pardon the egg salad stains, but I'm in love." written in soft pencil.
