Venn Diagram The Venn Diagram app allows users to compare and contrast information and to organize it in a visually appealing way. Users can customize their circles by choosing from several color choices, and both the circle and font sizes can be altered to better align with the users' needs for each project. The finished Venn diagram can be e-mailed or saved to the device's photo album. Designed for use in the school environment, this app features a simple profile system so that multiple users can create and store their own Venn diagrams on the same device without confusion. This app mirrors our web-based student interactive Venn Diagram, so users familiar with one can easily adapt to the other. In fact, users can send their editable .rwt files to an email address and then open their Venn diagram right in the online tool!

Ender's Game (series) The series is set in a future where mankind is facing annihilation by an aggressive alien society, an insect-like race known formally as "Formics", but more colloquially as "Buggers". The series protagonist, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, is one of the child soldiers trained at Battle School (and eventually Command School) to be the future leaders of the protection of Earth. Card first wrote Ender's Game as a novelette, but went back and expanded it into a novel so he could use Ender in another novel, Speaker for the Dead. That novel takes place three thousand and two years after Ender's Game, although due to relativistic space travel, Ender himself (now using his full name Andrew) is only 36, making him only 25 years older than he was at the end of the Formic Wars.

The Ender saga[edit] The Shadow saga[edit] Culture - Reading the world in 196 books I used to think of myself as a fairly cosmopolitan sort of person, but my bookshelves told a different story. Apart from a few Indian novels and the odd Australian and South African book, my literature collection consisted of British and American titles. Worse still, I hardly ever tackled anything in translation. My reading was confined to stories by English-speaking authors.

From within a web-browser, the inklewriter will let students make and play interactive stories with no programming required. Why make stories interactive anyway?

Yes I like it. I like researching likely books to see what they are about and how other people found them. Enjoy by mirosan Mar 19

This website provides a multitude of collaboration and networking opportunities. Everything from getting book reviews from a variety of readers to following the recommendations of friends and other library professionals to pick out your next read. I also love the books lists that are created based on genre, interest, reading level, etc. by katherineking2 Mar 19

Good reads is a website that provides seemingly endless information about books, including recommendations. It has a social aspect that allows users to connect with other users. • Students can take quizzes over books they have read and choose to share their results via facebook or twitter; this would be a great way to prompt book discussions online. • Students can browse books by genre and expose themselves to titles outside their school library. • Students can enter books they loved and generate personalized recommendations. by cheryllr5 Oct 11

Created by Amazon, Shelfari is an online community for sharing thoughts about books. • Students can write plot summaries for a real audience and publish online. • Students can compose character analyses and publish online. • Students can explore the personal bookshelves of others to get book recommendations. • Students can explore book lists organized according to most popular books, subjects, series, or authors. by cheryllr5 Oct 11

If you want to view my bookshelf, just conduct a search for members using "Mrs. Hermansen" and you will see a random selection of the books I have been reading for my CI 445 class. by hermansenh Nov 4

I very much agree. I think that students can really benefit from the opportunities to learn about books, find reviews, and view their own statistics. by hermansenh Oct 31

Lol. That is very true. Plus, living in Hong Kong as I do kind of necessitates having virtual bookshelves instead of actual bookshelves: there is very little space for storing anything! by jopo009 Oct 16

Yea it's a nice site. I like virtual bookshelves more than traditional dusting! lol by susanbainbridge1 Oct 4

I did, susan. It's a perfect way to keep track of all of the fantastic books I've read, as well as plan which ones I want to tackle next. :) by jopo009 Oct 4

Thanks, vanessa. I'm always glad to meet fellow bibliophiles! What's your latest pleasure? ;-) by jopo009 Oct 4

My favorite part about this site is the reading challenge. Of course you can set your own year's reading goal but there's just something about making it official on goodreads... by amandatyler Apr 24

i loved this site instantly as soon as i arrived on it...the recommendations are really helpful..and such a wide collection of books...heaven for me..:) by phoenix_ridhi Apr 23

I love this site..I like reading others' book reviews and getting recommendations; there are so many books coming out all the time, this helps me choose what to read next.And I can keep track of what I have read too.. by juneseghni Mar 28

Yes, It is! It's the ideal social network for Book lovers and people who love reading. Indeed! :) by birdie16 Mar 8

One of my Facebook friends let me know about the site for sharing book recommendations and I'm glad she did. It's been great to find out what others are reading. by webnetworkengineers Mar 8

I have located something like 50 new authors and books (none by the same author, or even really the same genre) that I have written down as to be bought and read. I have no idea where to put them all, but that problem can be solved when the time comes. But, yeah, I love the way it recommends boos based on you have already read. So, I put about 325 of my more obscure ones to see what kind of recommendations it would generate. Like I said, I now have about 50 books I really, really want :) by jenniflower Mar 6

This is a fantastic site if you love to read. It's a great way to catalogue the books you own or have read, find or share reviews and opinions, and it even has a Netflix style recommendation system to help you find new books you might like! by bohemiancyborg Mar 6

Great way to show off your reading list, be it "have read" to "owned this book" to "planning to read". by jerrtino Oct 16

it`s also a god shelf to remember books you`ve read. At least that`s its primary use for me by zekses Jul 26

I dont know about this site before, my friend show this for me. I thinks its good because help us to find our book. by arimpranata Jul 26
