Hello! Welcome to LearnSigns episode 32. In this episode I am going to talk about books.
We’ve seen this word before. BOOK. And then BIBLE is you do JESUS’ BOOK. So you do, JESUS BOOK – BIBLE.
LIBRARY – Where you can get BOOKS. LIBRARY is just your letter L and you are making a circle. Now this circle for me as a right-handed person will be clockwise. From my perspective it is clockwise. If you are left-handed then it will be counter-clockwise. So you go from the inside up and out. LIBRARY. Or, if you are doing it left-handed, LIBRARY.
BOOKSTORE – BOOK and then you do STORE. This is the word for SELL or STORE. BOOKSTORE
BOOKSHELF – A couple of ways to do this. BOOK and then you can do SHELF. BOOKSHELF. You are showing the ledge you put the books on. Or, I do this. You can do BOOK and then line them up like this. Or just do that if it is clear you are talking about BOOKS. BOOKS on a SHELF. BOOKSHELF
DICTIONARY – You have your large DICTIONARY here and you are going to flip the pages. Flip the pages with your letter D. DICTIONARY, DICTIONARY
ENCYCLOPEDIA is like that except it is with the letter E. ENCYCLOPEDIA
MAGAZINE – MAGAZINE. It is a small book. So you’ve got the small spine of the BOOK and you are showing the spine and how thin it is. So that would be MAGAZINE. It is also PAMPHLET or BOOKLET. MAGAZINE, PAMPHLET or BOOKLET
NEWSPAPER – This is the word to PRINT. PRINT. It is also just the general word NEWS. You would get your NEWS in PRINT. NEWSPAPER you will see it like this. Or I do it like this. I do NEWS and then I open a large NEWSPAPER. NEWSPAPER like you have a large PAPER there right in front of you and you are opening it up. NEWSPAPER
SCROLL – Like you are opening a SCROLL. Or it could be a SCROLL this way. You just wiggle your fingers like you are pulling something open. SCROLL
And then to do all of this, to actually enjoy the content in all of that you have to READ. READ. You take your eyes. These are your two…represents your two eyes. And you are going to READ down the page. READ
OK? Let’s go through those again.
BOOKSHELF or BOOKSHELF
MAGAZINE, PAMPHLET or BOOKLET. A small BOOK.
SCROLL or SCROLL
And then READ.
And of course the reason I am talking about books this week is I have released the book, Learning Sign Language. It is available at Amazon right now. I am working on getting it available at the Nook bookstore. Right now and for the next couple of weeks it will be available for $5. At Amazon and as soon as I can get it on Nook I will have it there.
