I love reading, but that has not always been true! When I was in the third grade my teacher was worried. She told my mom “All he reads are comic books, we need him to get started with chapter books!” So my mom began helping me find a book that I could read. I went to the library and looked at different topics. I like history, I like legos, and I really like learning about outer space. One day I was at school and saw a book called Percy Jackson: The Lightening Thief. It looked cool. I thought it was going to be a good book because on the back cover it had good reviews. I enjoyed the book so much that I couldn’t put it down! I read every day and quickly finished the whole Percy Jackson series. Reading these books make reading fun, not boring. For me, reading is the best when I read about things that are interesting to me.
