  8. 8. PERSUASIVE ESSAY Persuasive writing is writing that tries to convince a reader to do something or to believe what you believe about a certain topic.
  9. 9. Introduction Introduce your topic Thesis Statement A lot of people don’t like audio books. The thought of enjoying a cup of cocoa, sitting and holding a new book in their hands is such a wonderful experience. I’ve heard people say audio books are “not real reading.” I agree that audio books are not the same experience, but to suggest that they are less valuable annoys me. I believe audio books are a worthwhile and meaningful reading experience.
  10. 10. Body: Explain your argument. Support your ideas with facts and examples The main advantage with audio books is the gift of time. Audio books are the multi-tasker’s dream. Often I am unable to take the time to sit down and read. Audio books make it possible to read while doing almost anything. While completing household chores, knitting, or exercising on the treadmill, I can listen to a good book. I can even ‘read’ with my eyes closed! I can fit in a wonderful time of peace and enjoyment at any time of the day. Hearing the words pour musically from a disc is just as thrilling as reading the text. Audio books offer the advantage of being able to experience the rhythm and the tempo of the language. I especially enjoy listening to poetry. When reading Harry Potter and Because of Winn Dixie, the dialogue fascinated me. I felt I was able to enjoy the proper pronunciation of an unfamiliar word, and this increased my understanding and pleasure. One loving memory of our family vacations is listening to a book together as we traveled across the highway. We were all sobbing together at the end of Where the Red Fern Grows. Listening to authors read their own books is another special experience. It feels like a conversation with a cherished old friend.
  11. 11. Conclusion Summarize the main points Yes, the smell and feel of a new book will always capture me. But, I’ve grown to like audio books over the last few years. Both are enjoyable and valuable opportunities for adventure! Readers, I encourage you to try an audio book and please, never reject it as not ‘real reading’!
