At the recommendation of "animallover" I ran to the library and checked out the Molly Moon book. I found that I could not put it down! It was exciting, a true adventure.
Then I thought about the kinds of books that I liked and realized that I really liked books where there was an adventure. It seems that books with characters that are always on the brink of disaster really pull me in, and then I don't want to put them down.
Are you reading any good adventure books right now? If you are looking for one, I suggest the Molly Moon series.
