    I agree with all of these things except for the top selling chapter book which was the second percy jackson book. I read the first 70 pages of the first percy jackson, loved it but just wasn’t liking the whole gods thing. I still haven’t gotten around to reading the Hunger Games series. All of my friends are addicted to them. I knew about the top names because mu mom just had a baby and I have been to all the name sites but it surprised me that the animated movie was the Phineas and Ferb thing. I watched but didn’t like it very much. I’m not really a fan overall. I completely agree with 1 and 2 so, I’m HAPPY!
