Read Any Good Books Lately?

TamekaI love to read books. Especially, books that are about magical beings, like Harry Potter. I started loving books because when I was a little girl, my mom couldn’t afford cable. So, she would take me to the local library so that I could read the children’s books and listen to the librarian at story time. 

On Thursday, September 6th, my classmates and I celebrated National Read a Book Day. We picked out books from the San Antonio Public Library’s Bookmobile to read. The Bookmobile comes to the Arc every month.

I was really happy it was National Read a Book Day because I just started reading a book. It is the second book in the “Inheritance” book series named “Eldest” by Christopher Paolini. The book series is about dragons and their riders. I have two more books in the series and then I will be able to start the “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” book series.

On Thursday, September 13th, the other Arc Participants and I celebrated the 43rd anniversary of Hanna-Barbera’s television cartoon series, “Scooby-Doo, Where are You!” I learned that the animated TV show  premiered on CBS on September 13th, 1969. The show experienced widespread popularity and inspired a number of spin-offs following its broadcast. When I was a little girl, my favorite version of the Scooby-Doo shows was, “A Pup Named Scooby-Doo” (1988 to 1991) had the Mystery, Inc. gang (Fred, Daphne, Velma, and Shaggy) as children and a puppy. Also, the series inspired a wide range of home video releases, television films, and live-action motion pictures.

Now that deserves a Scooby Snack!
