I also used to read The Bionicle Books, Jedi Quest, Wolfbay Wings, and a few others from the ages of nine to twelve. But now I'm almost an adult, and therefore don't read those books anymore, 'cause they're for younger readers. Oh well. I can at least fondly remember the good times I had reading them.
