READER OF THE MONTH: Luigi Joaquin Go, 7G

Luigi on Spotlight:

My favorite book is Bone, a 9-book adventure series created by Jeff Smith. My mom inspired me to read books when I was six years old. She kept telling me that reading is good because it widens my understanding about everything.

The HSLRC is the perfect place to spend my love for reading. Aside from it being conducive to reading, HSLRC has a lot of very good books to choose from. You can actually find almost every kind of books there. Some of my  other favorite books are The Artemis Fowl, The Graveyard Book, Eternals, The 39 Clues, The Lost Hero and Red Pyramid. I am fond of books with adventure and horror themes. I also enjoy reading the books of Rick Riordan.

The 9 books of Bone is available at the HS Fiction with call number Sm6bh.  According to Wikipedia, the series Bone:
is an independently published comic series originally serialized in 55 irregularly released issues from 1991 to 2004. Bone was drawn and written by Jeff Smith. Smith’s black-and-white drawings were inspired by animated cartoons and comic strips, a notable influence being Walt Kelly’s Pogo.: “I was … a big fan of Carl Barks and Pogo, so it was just natural for me to want to draw that kind of mixture of Walt Kelly and Moebius.”[1] Accordingly, the story is singularly characterized by an effective combination of both light-hearted comedy and dark, epic fantasy: Time Magazine has called the series “as sweeping as the Lord of the Rings cycle, but much funnier.”[2] The series was published bimonthly with some delays from June 1991 to June 2004. The series was self-published for issue #1 through issue #19. It was published by Image Comics from issue #20 through issue #28. It reverted to its original self-publishing company, Cartoon Books, for issue #29 through issue #55 (the last one).
