I am currently finishing with Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone by J. K. Rowling. It has 309 pages and I am on page 239.
1. I have read four books this quarter. Those four books are: Undivided by Neal Shusterman, Alice In Zombieland by Gena Showalter, Unwind by Neal Shusterman, and Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone by J. K. Rowling.
2. The genres of my books are science fiction and fiction.
3. My most favorite book of the semester was Harry Potter.
4. My least favorite book of the semester was Alice In Zombieland -- although it was quite exciting.
5. I have learned that I am a fairly slow reader and typically enjoy shorter stories. I enjoyed the stories with adventure and mysteries more than the romantic stories. The one author that I read from the most was Neal Shusterman. I found out that he writes stories that are kind of back and forth from character to character and enjoys writing about possible events that could happen in the future.

I am currently not reading a book anymore because I could not finish one in a day or two.
1) This quarter I have only read three books. They were: "Fallen Angels", "The Rose Society" and "Tigers Quest". This semester I have read seven books. I would have enjoyed to find more books that intrigued me but its whatever man.
2) For genres of books I mainly read fiction with the accecption of one non-fiction novel, Fallen Angels.
3) My favorite book from this semester was Fallen Angels. I enjoyed how it told the story of Vietnam through the eyes of a soldier and not the government trying to hide the total death counts from the civillins back in the states.
4) My least favorite book from this semester was Tigers Quest, it was an actual piece of trash.
5) This semester I learned that I am a very slow reader and I would enjoy to try and become more of a speed reader. In the books I read I enjoyed to read about a lot of action that a main character was going through and had to come up with solutions to stay alive. This made the books relatable.

Right now i am not reading a book and it has 0 pages.

Then answer these questions in COMPLETE sentences. Number your responses please.
1. This semester I read a total of 4 books. The books I read this semester include (1) I am Nujood age 10 and divorced, (2) Heroes, (3) Stay alive, and (4) The things they carried.

2. (1) I am Nujood age 10 and divorced, and (4) The things they carried, and (2) Heroes, were all non-fiction. (3) stay alive was the only fiction book I read.

3. My favorite book I read this semester was (4) the things they carried.

4. My least favorite book I read was (3) stay alive.

5. When the semester started I wouldn't necessarily label myself as a reader. As it progressed and I got into the non-fiction war books my interest only grew bigger and bigger. I have never been one to take time out of my day to read but now I have no problem doing so if the book is of my interest like a non-fiction war book.

I am reading Forever. It has 192pages.
I have read 5 books this quarter : Burned, Sixteenth Summer, Go Ask Alice, While he was Away and Dark Blue. I have read 9 books this semester.
Most of my books were fiction and true story and nonfiction.
My favorite book was Zom-B Baby because it was scary and I just could not put it down.
My least favorite book was Dark Blue. It was to much selfishness.
What I learned about a reader is that I like books that make me keep guessing. For example I was always guessing in the book Zom-B Baby. Yes I enjoyed reading when I got the time to. I have learned that I like reading scary and romantic books. I did not read books that were by the same author.

I finished reading 5 books this quarter: Fallen Angels, The World Trade Center Attack, A Season To Remember, and Our Boys: A Season to Remember on the Plains with the Smith Center Redmen. I finished reading a total of five books this past semester. Over the five books I have read in the past semester, I have three sports genres, one nonfiction, and one nonfiction history genre. My most favorite book was by far Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers. My least favorite book was The World Trade Center Attack. I learned that I get distracted easily when I read, hence the short amount of five books read. Also, I learned that I really enjoy reading history themed books. When I sit down and have a book in my hands, I enjoy reading.

I am currently reading Ultimate Comics: Spiderman by Brian Bendis. I just completed it last class. This whole semester I read 12 books. Seven of those were this quarter. These books were The Fallout, The Monuments Men, The Call of the Wild, Diary of a Wimpy kid, Disasters, Flags of our Fathers, The Right Fight, Dead in the Water, Alive and Kicking, Kill Switch, Planet of the Apes, and Ultimate Comics: Spiderman. I mostly just read Fiction and Non-Fiction, the other genres did't really interest me much. My most favorite book of the semester was definitely Planet of the Apes, I chose this book because it was a really good story and fit my type of style. I learned about myself as a reader that if I put my mind to it I can get a lot of books read, I just need motivation. I learned that I really do like war books and comics, which really surprised me. I also found out about myself that I can stay focused on a book as long as it keeps me very interested.
