Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. Almost every hour of the day my nose is in a book. If I get a new book it is read within the hour. Every Friday we go to the library to get new books. By Saturday afternoon every single book is read. Books are my friends, because if I'm reading one I become part of the story, and it's like I'm really there. I have read so many books I can't count them, but here are a few I've read; Caddie Woodlawn, a Christmas Carol, Horsefeathers. And many ,many others. I have about 200 books on the shelves of my room and about 300 more down stairs. I love books so much that I would sleep with them if I could.
