About Me

People that know me know that I like to read. A lot. I read fast, so I get to read a lot of books. I learned to read by first learning letters and having my parents read books to me. I started learning to read words, then phrases, then finally sentences. I read, mostly, because I love to read.

Reason for Song Now Playing

I chose this song because reading makes me happy, and so does this song. I become very happy and entertained when I read.

My Latest Blog Entry: May 3, 2015

I am not currently reading any books right now, mostly because I just finished my last one yesterday. That book was Spy School by Stuart Gibbs. I really want the next book in the series.

My most recent book that I read was Spy School because it sounded very interesting and fits my preference of genres. I really liked that book. My favorite parts were the characters and the main plot. I would recommend that book to anyone who likes the "who dunnit" type of genre.

My Interests and Favorites

Some of my favorite books have been the books in the Percy Jackson series and the Heroes of Olympus series, both by Rick Riordan. Some other books I like are The Westing Game, by Ellen Raskin, Hoot, by Carl Hiaasen, and The Hobbit, by J. R. R. Tolkien. my favorite magazines are Sports Illustrated and National Geographic. My favorite authors are Rick Riordan and James Dashner. I like the series Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus because they are both action series and they are both about Greek and Roman mythology, which I like. I like the two authors Rick Riordan and James Dashner because they both write books with lots of action and plot. I like the magazine Sports Illustrated because it catches me up on what is currently going on in sports.
