My name is Jack Helms.

I'm 23 years old, and I live in Lepperton with my parents and younger sister. 

When I was young, I was in hospital for a long time, so reading books was pretty much the only thing I could do to entertain myself. Thankfully, I’m well past that tough stage of my life, but one thing has still remained: my love of reading a good book. If anything, that love’s only gotten stronger as I got older.

I’m an avid reader, having taught myself to read from the age of 3. I like almost all types of books (apart from the teen romance novels that my sister enjoys), but some of my favourite genres include illustrated novels for younger kids (such as the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, the Middle School series and the Tom Gates series), and any young adult novel with lots of action, especially ones featuring a secret undercover agency, such as the CHERUB, Alex Rider and Agent 21 series (which are all worth checking out if you know someone like me who’s into those sorts of books).

Along with working on this site, I am also doing an Open Polytechnic course on Information and Library Studies from home, as becoming a librarian has been a dream of mine from a young age. It isn’t always the most exciting part of my day, but it’s still interesting enough.

At this point, you may be asking yourself “This Jack guy sounds cool, but why is he telling me all this, and why should I check out his site?”

The main goal that I have for this website is to make it into a trusted site that parents, grandparents or librarians like YOU can turn to if you’re looking for reviews of funny, interesting and entertaining books to get the reluctant boys in your life excited about books and reading. 

I also hope that if the site gets enough publicity, it could also lead to it becoming noticed by libraries such as Puke Ariki (which is the name of my local library), or bookshops such as Whitcoulls or Paper Plus, so keep watching this space.
By the way, if you’re wondering where the ‘Buzzometer’ came from ...


... is the name of my pet dog. I’ve been trying to teach him to read too, but so far, the only words he knows are ‘sit’, ‘lie down’, ‘come here’, and ‘rabbit’ (which also happens to be his favourite food). If you still want to know more about him, all I can say for now is to stay tuned
