About Me

When I was young, I saw reading as being boring. I didn't know about all of the good books out there, and I didn't find it any fun. As I got older I started reading and trying different book series. As I read, I found that I really liked reading, and learned that if you give a certain book a chance, you might end up loving it. You just have to find the right one.

My Goals

My goals for reading would be to read for 30 minutes every day. When I read I usually read about a chapter or two and stop. I really want to learn how to Finish a book in a short amount of time, and not take a moth to finish a book.
