If you want to see how fast you read, click on the eReader above and take the timed test. After reading a selection from H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds, you’ll answer three comprehension questions and then receive your score. My favorite part is shown after the score page. That’s where you’ll discover how long it will take you, on average, to read such books as Tolstoy’s War and Peace, Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, or Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath.
Of course, I was most interested in how long it would take me to read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (five and a half hours).
How fast do you read?

While we weren’t able to meet at the Walnut Creek Library last week, we did manage to have a great time sitting in the café at Barnes and Noble. Well, if you’re willing to try again, so am I!
So, come join me at the library this Wednesday, December 29th, after 10:30. I’ll be sitting in the teen section upstairs. Just look for the big purple couches.
Let’s have a conversation about what you’ve been reading!! I can’t wait!!
Come join Mrs. Bailey and me at the Walnut Creek library Wednesday, December 22nd. We’ll be there after 10:30 and will stay at least until lunch. You can find us in the teen section upstairs, most likely. So, let’s talk about books…what you’ve been reading, what you’ll be reading, and get some ideas of what you can read next!
Congratulations to my Seventh Grade Lovelies!! As of this evening, you’ve read one hundred books!!! That’s…wait for it, wait for it…AWESOME!!! (and now I’ll wait while y’all imitate the teacher…)
One hundred books is a fantastic achievement in September, and I think that deserves something special. How about some extra silent reading time tomorrow?! Sound good?
I thought you’d agree! 🙂
