Knights Literary Reading
By: Nick M.
My goal as a reader is to be able to read a really long book. I also want to learn how to pronounce really long words.
Right now I am not reading any specific book; the only book that I am reading is our class book “Where the Red Fern Grows”. My most recent reading experience is the “Bones” series. I have no idea why I read those books but, they were pretty good.

Suzanne Collins Quotes
"I wish I could freeze this moment, right here, right now, and live it forever." I think Suzanne is trying to say that she is very thankful for being an author, and having so many books sold. Next, "May the odds ever be in your favor." I think Suzanne is trying to say that she wants things to be the best for us.
"Hope is the only thing stronger than fear." I think Suzanne is trying to tell us to have hope, because hope can conquer fear.
