Knights Literary Reading

About Me

I cannot remember when I first started reading. I enjoy reading a good book. Reading is a huge part of education. If you cannot read there are so many things that you will not be able to do. I believe that reading is something you can do in your free time.


My Goals

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.

My Favorites

Some of my favorite books are the "Diary of A Wimpy Kid" books. My favorite genre of books is fiction because fiction books are not real, so most of the time they are fun.

Blog Entry

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.
