Hey all!

 

I've been noticing while reading with my parents and friends that I take less than half of the time it takes them to read the same amount.  Also, whatever I read becomes more of a movie in my mind and one of my friends could not understand that concept.

I got tested and was told that I had a college reading level in the fourth grade.  I got excited about it and now I'm trying to figure out if I'm just plain strange or if there are some other super readers out there!

 

Thanks for reading!

Hi Greenstorm and Bullbulldog that's amazing!  It's nice to meet some other book dragons as opposed to book worms (because dragons are cool of course)!  Read anything good latley?

 

I'm sorry if you got the wrong impression Rainelf, this was not intended as bragging but to find others like myself and hopefully begin a book club.  That's all.

Haven't checked in a while, but I've always been above average.

Like, way above average. I read really fast (as long as I enjoy the book), and I also tend to "see" what's happening rather than just words on a page. It's hard to describe, though, I'm glad to find someone else like that!

Ha, I know what you mean about enjoying the book Turquoisepegasus.  That's where you end up 'eating' the book instead of 'reading' it!

 

You can "see" what you read too?!  I absolutely love that part!  The books where you become completely absorbed to the point where it is like a movie in your mind are the best!!  Crying during those is unfortunate for those around but when you bust out laughing it's fun.

I've never taken a test to find out my reading level, but I assume it's high. I read fast, I read a lot, I read big books, and I read old books (sometimes). I too "see" what's happening for the most part. Characters tend to be faceless blobs but other than that I have a basic view of the setting, blocking, etc.

Good to see you too skyscraperarrow!  How's it going? :D

 

Woa Dragonwarrior, a block out sort of vision when you read books?  That sounds interesting!

 

Eagledragon, that's cool you ended up in the same catagory!  You also like older books?  I love those; I found a section of the giant library on a nearby university campus that I'm allowed to visit that has two hundred year old books.  They are so beautiful and I love the writing!

I read pretty fast, but I completely zone out when I read.

During third grade, we were doing those stations, and one of them was free read. I got so absorbed in my book that I didn't notice that we switched stations, and I missed the next half hour of them.

You could blow up my pillow while I'm reading on my bed and I still wouldn't notice.

 

Some good books-

 

The Burning Sky

Scythe

Ranger's Apprentice Series

Bunheads (Some bad language, other than that it's really good)

The Maze Runner

Septimus Heap Series

Eragon

Thank you Skyscraper, that means a lot to me.  You can count on me too! 

 

 

That's a funny story Stormwolf!  I zone out too, sometimes its so bad that my mom will be talking to me and I don't even know. 

I love the Eragon series; a good read from beginning chapter to the final book!  Thanks for the suggestions, I've been looking for something good to latch onto.

 

I just finished Quidditch Through The Ages, I thought that was fun.  I really liked the screenplay novel for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them; I think I loved it more than the Harry Potter books! Shocking, I know!

 

Some books I've enjoyed:

 

The Kane Chronicles (Ancient Egypt + Magic = Awesome)

Dragons in our Midst (one of my personal favorite series)

The Circle Series (has great imagery writing to create a whole new experience in reading)

The Mysterious Benedict Society

The Friendship Experiment

My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish (easy read but funny)

The Strange Case of Origami Yoda (Again, easy read but laugh out loud funny)

It's not exactly a a black-out vision, although I do lose track of the world sometimes. I think it's more like... You know when... I mean... Do you ever... GRR WHY IS THIS SO HARD TO EXPLAIN. Umm... Okay, so when I think about a scene I remember reading, I can picture what's happening, not well enough to draw, but enough, as if it's an actual memory or a dream, but in memories I can remember people's faces. My "vision" characters are like my dream characters: I know who they are, but no one would recognize them and I can't describe them. It's like I recognize them by their souls, if that makes sense. 

 

THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY AND RANGER'S APPRENTICE YAHS

 

I like the Books of the Beginning series by Stephens. I still haven't read the last one though. XD

 

There's a book recommendations thread at /269702 if you're interested. I think it's about dead but whatever.

I visualize as well, and read quicker than most. My vocabulary is pretty big for a middle schooler. I read at a college reading level (12.9 to be exact). It seems like I'm bragging, doesn't it? I'll stop now. Language arts is probably one of the only things I'm good at in school, honestly.

I maxed out my Lexile (1700+) in fourth grade, and was at college level in third. I'm not into reading for fun that much any more, but I still have the same reading comprehension level. I used to read really fast, but now I'm just average speed. . . So. . .

 

Ahhh. . . *shirnks into corner*

I was reading chapter books in kindergarten and in second grade, they tested me after my teacher noticed I started finishing my chapter books in less than an hour, going to the library 7+ times a week. I was a college level reader in second grade and my teachers kept telling my parents to let me skip a grade. The Lexile range, though, at my school doesn't go past 12.9+ (12 grade, 9 months in or above, AKA college level) and I've been above it since second grade. I sound like I'm bragging. Wow. My mom actually wants me to take the english SAT test even though I'm in seventh grade because she wants to see how good I really am. I'm morally opposed to it because I don't like acting like I'm better than anyone. 

 

Once, I was so into my book that I didn't notice my entire family, plus aunt and 4 cousins, accidentally left me at home until I was finished with it. They had gone across the river without me and I didn't notice until after I was done. 

 

I have lots of book recommendations some of them include: The Fault in Our Stars (John Green), The Good, Good Pig (Sy Montgomery), and Zeroes (Scott Westerfield and some other cool authors.) Oh, oh, oh, and Everyday by David Levithan. Such a good book... Zeroes is REALLY good though but really long. Wait, who am I talking to again? Oh yeah, the fabulous readers. I got it done in two days.

Ha!  That's a good story Hawktiger and if you end up taking a SAT I think that's pretty cool.  Let me know if you take it and how it works out.

 

Windprincess, I bet with the right book set you would not be whatever you consider to be 'average'!  No corners!  Well, unless you are reading.  I love to curl in a good corner with a window and read. :D

 

Soccerraven, no worries we are not bragging here.  I think it's cool to talk with people who understand about the neat accomplishments we have reached.  Again I say no hiding! ;D

 

Dragonwarrior, I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND!  It is so hard to describe what happens when you read.  We are able to create a whole world based upon a bunch of letters on a page.  HOW COOL IS THAT?  The mind really is an amazing thing.  I will have to check out the Ranger's series, I've seen it but have been so distracted by all the other options in the library that I have yet to read them!  Books of the Beginnings?  I'll check that one out too!  Thank you for pointing me in the direction of the book club thread; that will have to be thoroughly examined!

 

Mimi, it is so true that a good book will have a greater pull on the need to read.  I often find that the case with really exciting books.

I don't know what reading level I'm on but it's definitely above my grade level... wow that sounded braggy (hides in the corner)

Anyway, I love the Harry Potter series and Rebel Genius by Micheal Dante DiMartino and the Nightsiders series by Jonathan Maberry and basically anything by Brandon Mull and just books in general *gasps for air*
