I just don’t want to read one book. There are so many different kinds of things to read in this world. There are books, magazines and newspapers. These are some of the things we read for information, for learning experiences, as a hobby to relax and enjoy or to learn about what is going on in everyday life.

 

When I become an excellent reader I can read everything and anything I want with no help. I want to go on wonderful journeys to different countries and places, seeing all their outstanding beauty around the world. Go on amazing adventures to explore the unknown and discover new nations. 

 

To go on the biggest hunt that the world has ever seen, to solve the greatest mysteries, to be the hero of the day or go back in time to find out about our history and heritage or to see what our future holds.

 

When we read, it makes us feel happiness, sorrow, love, hate, laughter, anger, knowledge, understanding, wisdom, faith and inspiration. We find solutions to problems, drama, action and so much more. 

 

To read and to understand what you are reading and be part of the wonderful stories is a remarkable feeling. Getting excited over what you are reading and wondering what is going to happen on the next page. You don’t know what to expect, what the writer is going to write about.

 

When I’m finished reading, my family, friends, classmates, tutors and everyone I know and love will be so proud of me. I will encourage others to read so they can get excited over reading.
