Congratulations to Charly K. for being Reader of the Month for October. To be Reader of the Month, students must submit a 5 sentence paragraph explaining why they love reading for the chance to have a pizza party with two friends in the library. Charly says, "I love reading because there are so many stories you can choose from that you can escape into. So many books that I love are explained so well that I feel like I'm actually there! To me, books are amazing because there are so many different stories that anyone would enjoy to read. Reading is really fun to do and I love it! I also love the Hunger Games books and the Series of Unfortunate Events because I love mysteries and crime. I couldn't choose a favorite character and I usually love authors that give very good detail! Congrats Charly!
