Dracula by Bram Stoker
How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster
- You do not have a handout to complete for this book; however, you should annotate as you read (either as marginalia in the book or on your own paper). Be an active reader. Read. Think. Record thoughts.
- Need help or guidance annotating text? Consider Harvard University's guide to "Interrogating Texts."
- Consider these questions as you read. While you do not have to do this assignment, the questions may help you with your annotations.

- Please keep track of what you read.
- I suggest that you open a free account with Shelfari or Goodreads to track your reading.
- You are taking an AP class. Consider challenging yourself by reading a work of literary merit that has been cited on past AP exams.
- Check out the South Carolina Young Adult Book Award Nominees, the New York Times Bestseller lists, or any other book lists that you can find online. You might also check with your local librarian, local bookstore associates, or even ask your friends for recommendations.
- If you enjoyed Dracula, consider The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. Just be careful about reading it while you are alone - it will scare you!
