Patience is a Virtue

Patience is A Virtue
   I believe I've grown in reading and have gotten better at reading comprehension and gaining new vocabulary. I just finished reading, A ThousandSplendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. This tells the story of a girl named Mariam, who lives in Afghanistan with separated parents. With her Father having multiple families and her Mom committing suicide, she goes on to meet another girl who has endured the same difficulties. This is an awesome book with amazing and applicable lessons. The main lesson is the idea of being patient.    Patience is a virtue and it is a hard thing to achieve.

A Long Way Home takes place over twenty five years ago near Ganesha Talai in Khandwa, India. It features a five year old boy named Saroo who lives on the streets of Calcutta, India with his mother, two brothers, and sister.

Reading Life of Dayne in One Day

Reading Life of Dayne John Hello! I am Dayne John. I am a High School student in 10th grade and believe it or not, reading isn't one of my primary hobbies. However, if I ever get an opportunity to read, I am so fascinated by the different genres, characters and everything that takes place in the book. Either way, reading is a gift that inspires one to dream of new ideas. I've never read any challenging books and stuck to simple children's books. Books like "Geronimo Stilton" by Elisabetta Dami and "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr. Seuss were the kinds of books that I read during spare time. Due to being in High School, I was forced to read books that were mandatory because of the demanding curriculum. Hence, I started reading more upper-level and complex books that helped me in my core classes. Today, when I find the right book, I will not put it down until I finish it. With these interests in mind, I have set a few reading goals.

My goal for this year is to…
