Me, Myself, and I (specifically my readings habits)

My name is Thomas (Tommy) Herr, I am sixteen years old rounding up on seventeen. I am also almost an Eagle Scout. My reading life is somewhat simple as I tend to stay in the action-mystery section of a library. In large, I find non-fiction to boring to read, so I stick with fiction. My favorite author is without a doubt, Clive Cussler, he is a superb author he has written around sixty-six books, many of them are in trilogies as he has, what would seem like, endless creativity. I read around thirty to fifty pages a day with around the same amount of time allocated to reading. My required nine weeks reading is The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, this book have been referred to in many ap tests and is called a "classic".
