MY READING LIFE
Hi, I am an American living in England. I am going to tell you about reading through my life. For a while I had no books that interested me, besides some of Mo Willems picture books. It wasn’t very long ago when I started reading a lot.
When I was younger, I read my first chapter book: Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus. But it wasn’t long before I grew out of those.
Then, for my birthday I received a package from my best friend who lives in the USA. I opened the package. It was some Horrid Henry chapter books by Francesca Simon. I have to admit I was a little bit disappointed.
I started to read a little bit of the chapter… then some more… then the next chapter… then the next…then the next… then before I knew it, I had finished the book! It was a very good and funny book. I had a few more Horrid Henry books left to read…
Now I have bought 2 more Horrid Henry books, and even got one signed by the author when I saw her talking about her new book. I’ve now seen the movie, checked out most of the series from the library, and have read all of the ones I own about 100000000000000 times.
Now that I like to read, I have read lots of other series. Now, my favorite books are the Stardust series by Linda Chapman and still the Horrid Henry books.
I read chapter books in order, which encourages me to read the next one. I like to imagine myself in scenes or being the character.
I would say if you don’t like reading, don’t give up and keep reading books to find the right one. If you are lucky, it will be in a series so there will be many to read.
