If you really want to read a really good book series you have to read the TWILIGHT series by Stephenie Meyer. The books in the series are called twilight, new moon, eclipse an…d breaking dawn. Another really good book that is also written by her is called THE HOST. There's also a really good book called "The Hunger Games" There are 4 really good books by Viginia Andrew, the first one is "flowers in the attic." the second one is "petals on the winds" the third one is "If there be thorns." and the forth one is "The seeds of yesterday" these are true stories about a painful life full of sorrow and sadness, in the beginning there are four, at the end there are only 2. they go through every kid's nightmare, and after they manage to escape the past, it comes back to haunt them. they are amazing books, and I've cried so much from them, but they are worth it...trust me. Blue is for nightmares, white is for magic , silver is for secrets . and red is for remembrance are all really good books as well. Also Inheart, Inkspell and Inkdeath are good books. Also the Darwin Awards are hillarious! also there is a GREAT book called "WUTHERING HIGHTS" By Emily Bronte. but its kinda of a hard book to read And it's really sad. OMG. I had the same problem as you, and i was looking around and I found the BEST book I've ever read. like FOR REAL. twilight is allright...but this was just amazing compared to that it might seem like too much reading, but it's really not. when i started reading, i COULDNT stop. and it is just really an amazing book. please give it a chance (: it's about teenage love, and pretty much everythin put all into one (: The Vampire beach series- by Alex Duval (Awesome) the Immortals series- by Alison noel (The Best Books Ever!!) The Wake Trilogy- By Lisa Mcmann (Awesome) ___________________________________________________________________ The reason I asked this was to answer it! I am an advanced reader, and I can tell, because my temporary 4th grade teacher recommended an 8th grade book for me!!! Loser- Jerry Spinelli Harry Potter series (THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ IM A HUGE FAN!!!)- J.K. Rowling (The best author in the whole universe!!!!!) Matilda- Rohld Dahl: about a girl who is very very smart, and soon realizes that she is much more than she needs to be, and grown-ups arn't always the powerful ones. Twilight- Stephanie Meyer:I haven't read them, but, I'm pretty sure you know!! That Summer- Sarah Dessen: My sister read it, ask her! The Graveyard- I don't know: a boy whose parents are murdered, and who grows up and lives in a graveyard with ghosts. Unfortunate Events- I don't know: About a girl and two boy siblings, and whose parents are murdered and live a very very unfortunate life, but, are all very clever, which helps them along the way. Smiles to Go- I don't know: about a boy named Will, who has his first kiss, and all about the love of Tabby's life, who would turn out to be who you would not think Flipped- I don't know: I don't know. I haven't read it, but it looks cute. (Hey, I only pay attention to the book, not the authors!!!! Don't judge me.) THAT'S ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well I know more, but I can't think of any. :# I loved these ones: The Vladimir Tod Series, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Series of Unfortunate Events, Harry Potter by JK Rowling, Twilight by Stephanie Meyers, Inheratance Circle [or Eragon series] by Christopher Paolini, Eggs, Loser, [both by Jerry Spinelli] My Side Of the Mountain, Witch and Wizard by Josh Patterson, and the Warrior Series by Erin Hunter. I WOULD NOT READ THE VAMPIRE DIARIES! I read like up to page 20 and hated it. The girls too preppy. . Try these: Hatchet- Gary Paulsen Bud not Buddy- Christopher Paul Curtis Run- Eric Walters Well, the BEST books ever, in my opinion-and kinda everybody else's-the best books are these: Dog On It(and the sequel, Thereby Hangs A Tail, and the prequel-coming out on September 17th or so-go to www.chetthedog.com)-by Spencer Quinn Dog On It and the other books are the BEST ever!!! Turst me on that. And also try The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. They're good, too, but not as good as the first books I've mentioned. And also Impossible by Nancy Werlin. That's a really good book. Wanna know what they're all about? Look it up. Sorry, my hands hurt from typing and Imma leave right now. Bi Try this: Percy and the Olympian series : These are awesome! Did you know one of them came out as a movie? Hoot- Hiasson: Nice book about owls and the environment. I liked it a lot! Thanks to this book, Hiasson became my favourite author!

The Well of loneliness is a classic novel dealing with Lesbianism. it was written by a writer named Radcliffe Hall. ( not a college building!) she died in l943 in England. The…re are subliinal homosexual overtones in a good number of cartoons and related stories that have a sort of ( band of brothers) or close-knit clubhouse setting such as ( The Wind in the Willows, Winnie the Pooh (only one female character, Kanga) and the cartoon of TV notoriety (Top Cat!) the original ( later edited) theme song even came right out and sang: Top Cat, the Intellectual, Top Cat, the Homosexual! and kids immediatley picked up on it! Movies dealing, usually tragically with Homosexual plots included (the Sergeant) . Title character was a disturbed NCO that liked privates and private parts of them!
\n. \nNo. Reading in the dark will strain you eyes. If you have a booklight or a flash light that will work and then you can get the eery effect without straining your eyes.
George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four or Animal Farm.the diary of a wimpy kid series are good books.
Because it is the most well known book that will point you to Jesus and eternal life. The Gospel of John is a good place to start.
I forget the author, but Rise & fall of the 3d Reich was one I could not put down. The interesting part is was all true. Also there are some good one's on the Manhatten projec…t.
WEll where i found out about i found it, on Harper Collins, but they only have half of it.
If your talking Twilight then defiantly New Moon.
readings books of English language has a good influence by reading English we can improve our . vocabulary . reading power . pronunciation . etc
I like to read either on my bed, or maybe outside in the sun; I could get a good tan at the same time. X D

it helps me excercise my mind, it also takes me to places i've never been before.
Some pretty good books that you can read are anything by S.E. Hinton. I've read all her books. If you would like to find some of her books in a library or a bookstore near you…, ask the Customer Service people to help. These are the names of her books. The Outsiders. That Was Then, This Is Now Tex Rumblefish Taming The Star Runner. Want to know the summaries of them? Here they are! The Outsiders: They walked out slowly, silently, smiling. "Need a haircut, greaser?" The medium-sized blond pulled a knife out of his back pocket and flipped the blade open. I finally thought of something to say. "No." I was backing up, away from that knife. Of course I backed right into one of them. They had me down in a second. I fought to get loose, and almost did for a second; then they tightened up on me and slugged me a couple of times. So I lay still, swearing at them between gasps. A blade was held against my throat. "How'd you like that haircut to begin just below the chin?" That Was Then, This Is Now: I looked across the street, watching some little twelve and thirteen year-old teeny-boppers make fools of themselves-smoking, trying to act cool, pushing each other, screaming and swearing so loud I could hear them. I had a sudden recollection of Mark and me at twelve, smoking our heads off, clowning around, hoping someone-usually some little long-haired chick-would notice us and see how cool we were. All of a sudden it seemed like I was a hundred years old, or thirty at least. I wondered if, when I got to be twenty, I would think how stupid I was at sixteen. When I remembered us, it didn't seem possible that we had looked as silly as these teenyboppers, but I guess we had. At least then we weren't worried about looking silly. We were sure of ourselves, so sure we were the coolest things to hit town. Now I wasn't so sure. Tex: "Tex?" I didn't move. He took hold of my shoulder, easy, to let me know he wasn't fighting any more but I jerked loose. "Look, I didn't mean to...dammit, Tex, I just want to see if you're hurt." "I ain't hurt." My voice sounded weird, I think it was because I couldn't breathe through my nose. I stayed still, waiting to get my strength back, trying to make some sense out of what happened. I couldn't figure out what had happened. "Lookit, Tex, it wasn't you - I mean, I didn't aim to take it out on you like that." I didn't know what he was talking about and I didn't care. "I'm going to get my horse back," I said "Pop wouldn't let you sell those horses if he were here." "Pop isn't here!" Mason shouted. "Can't you get it through your thick skull that all this happened because Pop isn't here!" Rumblefish: "Rusty-James," Steve said. I didn't look up. House sounded like he felt sorry for me and I didn't want to see him feeling sorry for me, because if I did I would hit him, no matter what. "You're just like a ball in a pinball machine. Getting slammed back and forth; and you never think about anything, about where you're going or how you're going to get there..." I didn't understand what he was talking about. I did think about where I was going. I wanted to be like the Motorcycle Boy. I wanted to be tough like him, stay calm and laughing when things got dangerous. I wanted to be the toughest street-fighter and most respected hood on our side of the river. I had tried everything...Even though nothing had worked so far, that didn't mean nothing ever would. Taming The Star Runner: "Not my uncle, man, I'm scared of the plane. I'm scared to get on the goddamn plane..." "You ain't scared." Travis slumped back against the wall and met Joe's eyes for a second. Joe was appalled. Travis Harris, the coolest, the toughest... "Remember that drag race we had with those guys from Central?" Joe asked Of course, Travis remembered it clearly. They were in the twins' Trans Am and Travis was driving/ He was the only person they let drive their car. He was doing 110 on the expressway and he took one hand off the wheel to take Kirk's beer and slug it down. his other arm trembling with the effort of driving, and everyone was holding his breath. He hit 115 and nobody was breathing at all, he asked for another and Billy, - maybe Mike - gave him one quickly, afraid he'd turn around and take it. They were flying, skimming the road, the central guys left behind long ago, and nobody, man, nobody thought he'd get the car back down. He just kept asking for more, faster, harder, they couldn't even hear the radio anymore or see the lights rushing by in the night, as if they were all suspended in time, nothing real except the lights on the dashboard where the needle kept climbing... "Remember that, Trav? You can't be scared." Travis stared down at his boots. "I was driving." I STRONGLY suggest you read The Outsiders first. It'll make more since about all of them. After you read them, watch the movies! Taming The Star Runner is not a movie, though. I hope you enjoy reading the books and like my answer! Thanks! -Sm:)e
It helps to develop your vocabulary as well as your reading and writing skills.
Books can: . entertain . inform . teach anout people, places . teach new vocabulary . turn on our imaginations . help us create . help pass the time Another answer:… Books act as an escapade from the harsh realities of the world aspeople find themselves being plunged into the world of imagination,away from their worldly worries, although for a limited time. Andwhen they return to reality, their minds are fresh. Its a healthyhobby, which isn't really disadvantageous.. Plus, one gets toexperience different kinds of emotions, cultures, situation etc.,while sitting at a single place only!
