My name is Galoopdaloop, and I'm here to blog about books. I want to talk about my favorite books, but let me start off by saying that reading wasn't my thing.
I remember when I was in preschool, reading pop up books. Nevermind that; I opened up the book and ripped the pop ups out, but I left the words in the book in. Sadly, I didn't read the words in the book, but those pop ups were so amazing, I ripped them right out of the book. I was a pretty weird kid.
Then, I went into fifth grade, and I had to read 25 books. "HOLY COW 25 BOOKS" I screamed in my head. Pretty strange how I was able to scream in my head, but not a story. It gets worse. Once I got into Sixth grade, I had to do ANOTHER 25 BOOKS! I felt like I read every book in the world after that!
But I was wrong. After I read about 3 books, I started a Diary of a Wimpy Kid book. Don't ask me how i didn't read this one yet. I was very interested in the realistic fiction and the style of the book. Sadly, I didn't read the other books in the series until i got to eighth grade.
What inspired me to read the other books is the high lexile level on those books. I read them, and I understood the book word from word. I thought that I was bad at reading until I came across these books.
I think the reason why I never liked reading is because I was never interested the first second I read it and I doze off. Then I keep reading and I wonder what's even happening, and yet again doze off.
Anyways, I'm glad I read Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It got me into reading.
