For any four chapters of the book (could be an appendix), do the following:
1. Write a question that you either know the answer to (or that you can find the answer to), and answer it.
2. Write a question that you could not find (or understand) the answer to.
3. Write a comment on the material -- do you have any thoughts about anything you've read?
This can be subjective; an example would be to find and listen to music by one of the composers mentioned in Chapter 1.
What did you think of it -- was it appealing or appalling ?
