Hello and welcome back to my blog, I hope you are all enjoying your holidays and are having a great summer. For me, I love the holidays, it’s a great chance for me to hang out with my friends, siblings and go swimming at the beach. Just like most children I was really excited for Christmas. This year I got to make lunch for my dad and brothers which was nice. I am not a very strong reader, although I did enjoy reading all the recipes and relating text back to pictures. Sometimes I don’t like reading because it gets boring, although if you find the right book, you can read all the time! Some people read books, the newspaper, articles, and more factual things. For me, I like to read magazines, short books, blogs, recipes and articles on things I like. I think it is important to practice and try to read as much as possible.
I read slower than my friends, but that doesn’t mean I’m not as smart as them. It just means, that I take my time and process things differently. Towards the end of January, I have an exchange student coming over to Melbourne and I’m really excited! She seems like a lovely girl and she reads A LOT! I have been asking her for book suggestions, but sadly she reads different styles of books to me, and there is nothing wrong with that! I have been reading about traveling, and in particular, places to go around Melbourne. This is so I can show her around Melbourne and give her the best experience I can.
I also think that it’s important to read things that are in line with your interests and enjoyment.
At my school, the librarian always tells me “if you ever pick up a book, read a few pages and if you don’t love it, then don’t continue it, because you will soon find a book that you’ll love,” and I couldn’t agree more with her. Take your time and find a book that you love.
I hope you have enjoyed this blog and you have learned something new 😊
