Classic books are books that were written a long time ago, like Little Women or Black Beauty. For the next two quarters, I h ave to read a fiction book, a nonfiction, and a classic or an award-winning book. I chose to read Little Women because it was the first book that I thought of. My mother said I should have read it before, but I never wanted to, it just didn't seem interesting. Now, over Christmas Break, I'll read to keep up with my Reading Counts. It's a little ironic, since the books starts at Christmas.

So far, it's a good book, just like my mother said it would be. My mother also said I'd be Jo, a tomboy girl. It's actually true, I'd never want to be like the other girls. It'd kill me to actually do chores like knitting, sewing, and cooking. I don't even know how to cook!
Japanese anime is a style of cartoon that, like its name states, comes from Japan. It's very popular in the U.S. as well though. Many Japanese anime's have female heroines. There are still the male protagonists, so get worried boys. Some Japanese anime's include, Pokemon, Naruto, Naruto: Shippuden, Dragon Ball Z, One Piece, and Inuyasha.

My absolute favorite Japanese anime has to be Naruto. The main character is a boy named Naruto who has the nine tailed fox inside of him. Most people are afraid of jinchuurikis, people who hold tailed beasts inside themselves, because of their demons or beasts. Naruto's dream is to become the Hokage, the leader of the fire country, and, despite the odds and negative feelings around him, he tries his best. I won't tell you the ending, though, you need to go find that for yourself.
