The Dear America Series

by ????? a lot of people
The Dear America series is good if you like historical fiction and learning about the past. The books have an epilogue and a historical note. My favorite book is Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie: The Oregon Trail Diary of Hattie Campbell, by Kristina Gregory. It is about a girl (Hattie Campbell) who walks the Oregon trail. It is a story about going through a hard time, friendship, and achieving your goals.
Another one I like is The Winter of Red Snow: The Revolutionary War Diary of Abigail Jane Stewart. I can't remember the author. It is about a girl (Abigail Jane Stewart) who lives during the revolutionary war. It is a story about giving, helping others, friendship, and hard times. There are a LOT of these books.
Happy readingSmile!
P.S. All the books are diaries.

When I was in second grade I was obsessed with these books.  Literally, obsessed.  I would check about ten of them out of the library at a time.  I got over them a while ago, though.  They're still all right though, if you like that sort of thing.

Generally, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Realistic Fiction, Autobiographies, a well-written Romance every here and there, and some Magical Realism is rather nice. Nonfiction books about dinosaurs, space exploration, the periodic table, and ancient civilizations are good as well. I also read some magazines, such as National Geographic, Cricket, and Entertainment Weekly. And then there are the few webcomics I support (XKCD) but now we're off topic.
