Outside reading 2 Blog post 1 (The Book thief) 2006)

A. Page 32 Adequate: A requirement for that suits a good enough purpose and space. quote from book "It was supposedly not a basement of adequate depth."

B. Page 41 Spite: A particular instance of such an attitude or action, grude. From book The poverish had a spite time with the wealthy.

For examples of figurative language the book starts with a poet like writing from the mothers side before her death in Germany. " Foot prints were sunkin to their shins. Trees wore blankets of ice." I guess that also showed some personification and goes throughout the book. For imagery example of a German wife "When a woman with an iron fist tells you to get out there and clean the spit off the door, you do it. Especially when the iron's hot." you can really feel the tension of this foster family in the book and how it exaggerates the mood.

Their voices were full of song, culminating in a roaring rendition of Germany over everything. On page 62. That Germany was uniting into facism of power showing off to Jesse Owens in the olympics.

For my sentence I would say "We are viewers of history as we watch everything change pass us." Since this book takes place of a 10 yr old girl who watches all these horrible changes
