39 Clues-Books 1-4

I've started a book series called 39 clues. I have been reading the for about 3 months. Right now, I am on book 5, but I'm almost on book 6. There are 11 books in the regular series. Then, there are 2 books in the Cahill vs. Vespers series. Book 3 will come out on March 6.

The 39 clues are about the biggest family ever. Almost every famous person ever that you can name was a Cahill. They are in a race for 39 clues. The teams are Dan and Amy Cahill, Ian and Natalie Kabra, Alistair Oh, the Holts, Irina Spasky, Jonah Wizard and Sinead, Ned, Ted Starling. The winner will become the most powerful Cahill of all-time.

The interesting thing is that there are about ten different authors for the 39 clues series. I have every single book.

Here are my rankings for the best books from one to five:

1. Book 5 by Patrick Carman

2. Book 1 by Rick Riordan

3. Book 3 by Peter Lerangis

4. Book 2 by Gordan Korman

5. Book 4 by Jude Watson

39 Clues has a website. It is a very good website. You can play the game and upload your cards. I recommend going on it. Here it is: I recommend 39 Clues to ages 8 and older.

A Hobby I Enjoy-Basketball

For the Awesome Blogging Tournament, I have to write a post on a hobby I enjoy. I'm going to write about basketball. It is very, very fun. I love watching and playing basketball.

Since I started basketball, I've always loved it. My first season, I wasn't that good. My second season, I was a little better, but still not as good as I wanted to be. I was the star of my team in my third and fourth seasons. This season, I've not been doing as good as I wanted. I enjoy playing the sport because I love to shoot and it is very fun to pretend that there are three seconds left in the championship game and I try to hit the game winning shot. I love watching it because I could see what I need to do to improve and it is fun to see players like Blake Griffin and Chris Paul doing great dunks, layups, threes, and clutch shots. All in all, I love the game of basketball.

Do you like basketball?

Who has everybody going Linsane?

 This is Linsanity! Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks has come out of nowhere and become a star. He has people saying Linsane, Lincredible and Linsanity. Last year, I saw him play when I went to see the Lakers vs. Warriors game. Since then, he's been on the Rockets and Knicks. Now, the Rockets general manager regrets cutting him. He's played in the D-League this year!

Out of nowhere, he's been playing amazing. For the last four games, he's been the star of his team averaging 28 points and 8 assists in those games. They've even played the Lakers! Tonight, they will play the Timberwolves. I'd like to see him do amazing against Ricky Rubio. It'll be crazy if he could go past Kevin Love, but maybe he will!

How good do you think Jeremy Lin is?

Winner of the 1st Ultimate Blogging Challenge: Blogging Duo

The 1st Ultimate Blogging Challenge has ended. The winner was: Blogging Duo! Blogging Duo was the team of Ethan and Jaden. We won in two rounds. I will now announce how we won:

In the first round, Jake and Mark were eliminated. Then, both teams were eliminated in the second round. Jaden was the only one out of the four people who did the challenge. Despite being eliminated, both people on Blogging Duo did the extra credit which was sign up for the Awesome Blogging Tournament. That means that Blogging Duo wins, and has one life left over.
