Knights of Literary Reads

By Chris S

About me

I learned to read by my mom reading out loud to me. I read because it is a good pastime and I enjoy picking up a good book to enjoy.

My Goals

My goal as a reader is to finish more books than I ever have in a year. I want to improve how fast I read my books.

My Favorites

The book genres that I like to read are mainly fantasy and post-apocalyptic type books. Some of my favorite writers are Christopher Paolini and J.R.R. Tolkien.

Blog Entry

The book I’m reading now is called Brisingr and the book I read last was called Eldest. These books are written by the same author and are part of the same series. I very much enjoy reading these books because they have the main type of style I like in a book.

Origins and influences of author

Christopher Paolini was born in California on November 17, 1983. He lived with his mother, father, and his sister. The experiences he had living in the mountains gave him the influence to write. Christopher also read a lot of Folklore when he wasn’t being homeschooled on his free time.

Author's books, genres, messages/themes

Christopher Paolini writes Fantasy novels. He writes novels that have a little hint of themes like good versus evil and fate and free will. He has written books called Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr.

Quotes by your author and explanations

One of the quotes that I think is true and speaks sense is “live in the present, remember the past, and fear not the future, for it doesn’t exist and never shall. There is only now.” Basically he is saying that the future doesn’t exist yet and it will only exist when it has come.

Trivia-Interesting facts

I find it interesting that Christopher Paolini made his own bow, fletched his own arrows, and created his own knives and swords.
