An outstanding reader

Robbie had to write an autobiography for school. Of course he wanted to include something about reading, and his idea was to write "I am a good great amazing OUTSTANDING reader. Hmm, I guess I don't need to worry about his self confidence. I suggested that that might seem like bragging, and maybe instead of telling his readers, he could show them. So we added up his reading sheets for the year and here's what he wrote instead: I like school and I love to read. Since September, I’ve read 77 books and a total of 23,112 pages. My favorite book is Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. He's already read six more books since then. So I'm bragging a bit, but I'd say he's an outstanding reader. :)
