Books, Books, and More Books!

 “Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read." -  Groucho Marx.

  I liked this quote because it was a funny way of saying that outside of his friends and family (and in this case dog), a book is a man's best friend.  I liked this quote because outside of the people in my life, my books are my best friends.  I love to read books of all sorts, like fantasies, mysteries, non-fiction, fiction, etc.  My favorites are usually series of books, because one book is just not enough for me!  Some of my favorite series include Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, I Am Number Four, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Pretty Little Liars, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and many more!  Some of my favorite authors include J.K. Rowling, Rick Riordan, Sara Shepard, and more!

  I love to read books just as much as I like to do other fun things, like play video games or play on a sports team.  I just love reading books with interesting characters and interesting adventures.  When I am reading a book, I feel as if I am the character going on the adventure, kind of like how you feel when you are watching a movie.  I love learning about the characters, and feeling like I am like I personally know them.  I just love reading books, because they are like an escape from my life and a doorway into someone's far more interesting one!
