Kindle In Massachusetts the library is getting ready to get rid of all of their books. That is the same in Hoover, Alabama. Our librarian said we would get rid of all our books. Some people say they would love it some people say they would hate it. Our librarian said it is the beginning of the future. Transforming the library can be hard to some people. Kids in my class say they would hate it some people say it would be ok. I think I would hate

it because it would take a lot of money to replace all the books with money. I hate you have to use your finger, to turn pages and find unknown words. The books are five or ten dollars. The pictures are black and white, not colorful. You have to charge a Kindle which uses electricity. I think it is wasteful. You can drop a book from 100,000 feet and it would not break. If you dropped a Kindle from 100,000 feet it would break.

Planet Or Not? Should Pluto be a planet or not? It is very small just like Mercury. Pluto is a gas planet. Would you like to take a trip to Pluto? It is three billion miles from the sun, so you better get going. I think Pluto should be a planet, because it is just like some of the other plan-

ets. I hate if they put Pluto with Eris and Ceres those two planets are ok to be dwarf planets but Pluto is not and will not be a dwarf planet. I am not happy they are sending New Horizons to go get pictures of Pluto. I think Pluto should be a

planet. It may not be the same size of our moon but, they say our moon should be a planet. I hope that if New Horizons does not bring info about Pluto that they will make it a planet.

Pluto has got smashed and it knocked Pluto’s orbit off and it broke Pluto in half.
