    the title of the book being read Jacob the Great from the story that I read about Jacob, he is a child who has a lot of hobbies, and his hobbies don't always last, for example when he plays the guitar then because his hands hurt he keeps them under the bed, and when he sees the advertisement of a meain treasure hunter he started saving, and when he managed to buy the machine, he just found a bottle cap and a few cents, after that he buried the machine too, then his last request was to want a magic trap, but his father was not sure of it, only Jacob insisted and his father answered him on his birthday, he while enjoying playing with a magic wand, Jacob saw an ad that caught his attention and he began to move away from his wand.
    in my opinion this story explains about a boy named Jacob who is easily influenced by something but is also easily bored, some of his hobbies do not last long, and each hobby that can spend some money, on the one hand Jacob is a child who likes to save to achieve its purpose.

    In the narrative the text "Jacob the Great" describes a different atmosphere every day and this is very interesting. This story has interesting variations from the start of introduction, climax and completion. from what I read Jacob is a kid who doesn't stick to one hobby. He has many hobbies that keep changing. He also has a lot of will but he always strives to realize his desires. Jacob is a persistent child. In this story makes the reader not bored because of the variety of storylines that provide a different atmosphere. This text is easy to understand besides this text also provides motivation for readers that to get something we must try.

    “Jacob the Great” This passage talked about a kid who likes to do any activities until he got a million hobbies from what he loves to do. However he never stuck with any of them long enough to get any good. When he likes something he will directly ask the father to buy or get the thing, and the father use to got angry with him because of keep on asking something that wasting the money. This passage has an interesting variations start from introduction, climax, and close with completion, this one also quite difficult to be understood by the reader, because there are some sentences that confusing so the reader should read twice or more to get the point of the passage itself, and also at the end the reader will be curious about what will happen after the last sentence in the passage. But overall this passage is totally interesting to be read by everyone.

      "nonfiction-reading-test-pony-express"

      In 1860 and 1861, the Pony Express was the
      fastest way to get news to and from the West.
      The trail that they rode was around 2000 miles
      long. It took most people weeks or months to
      ride that far. The Pony Express could make the
      trip in just ten days. Those speeds were
      unheard of at the time. So how did they do it?
      Well, they had a good system That is The Pony Express had 184 stations along the
      trail. The stations were around ten miles apart.
      This is about how far a horse could run at a
      gallop before tiring. The rider would switch to
      a new horse at each station. He would only
      take his mail pouch with him. Every 75-100
      miles, the rider would get to a home station. At
      each home station, riders would rest. Before
      resting, he would give his mail pouch to a new
      rider. The mail never stopped moving, even
      while the horses and riders rested event It was tough to ride for the Pony Express. Each
      rider had to weigh less than 125 pounds. Speed
      was the key. Most of the riders were teenage
      boys. They rode at a fast pace for up to 100
      miles a day. If there were an emergency, one
      might have to ride 200 miles in a day. The ride
      could be rough and dangerous. Attacks by
      Native Americans were common. But in its
      time running, the Pony Express only lost one
      mail pouch.

    This story tells of a boy named Jacob, who did not know exactly what he wanted in his life. Like having lots of dreams, doing new things and having lots of activities is also a hobby, but his hobbies don't last long like changing from playing guitar, treasure hunting, magicians and even wanting to become an astronaut. But despite all that, he realized he had to achieve his dreams by continuing to try until finally he could realize his dreams one by one.
    We can take the message from this story, if we want something to be possible, don't delay, keep trying to do well because nothing will work unless we do it.

    "Chess" chess is a game that requires high concentration and drains the mind. one can lose concentration for some time in chess if it is too serious. That is why if a player has a big goal to win in his game then he must try fast to finish the game so as not to lose concentration.

    Television is one of the long-distance communication tools that uses visual media. Television gets data from cables, disks, or signals in the air and then the data is converted into sound and images. The first TV was made by John Baird in 1925. Which only has one color. And can only display 30 lines. It didn’t work well. In 1928 the first TV station was founded, It was in New York. By the end of the 1930s, TVs were working well. America got its first taste at the 1939 World's Fair. This was one of the biggest events ever. There were 200 small, black and white TVs set up around the fair. By 1948 there were 4 big TV networks in America. They aired their shows from 8 to 11 each night. Color TVs came out in 1953. They cost too much money for most. By 1965, color TVs were cheaper. Now most TVs are high-def. This means that they have many lines on them. This makes the image clear. TVs have come a long way since Baird's 30 line set.

    this is my second comment about "CHESS" unlike most sport in chess we do not train muscles, but the brain. chess also requires players to think sharper and one step ahead of their opponents but i a narrow span of time must decide the best step to take win the game. so no wonder, often the ability to play chess that is qualified is a associated with a high level of intelligence.
    rules and how to play chess is a sport that is performed using a board game consisting of sixty four boxes with a size of 8x8. the boxes are divided into to two different colors, generally black and white. these two colors represent the two players who will compete. therefore, chess is a sport that can only be play by two people, no more ore less.

    This is my third comment about TV.
    Television is one of the electronic media that has great power in influencing society. Until now, television is still considered as an information center for most people in the world, including in Indonesia.
    Literally, the word television comes from the merging of two words, namely tele from Greek which means far and visio from Latin which means vision.
    So, television is a device used to see things from a long distance. John Baird made the first TV in 1925. It has one color. It can only display 30 lines. This is just enough room for the face. It didn't work well, but that was the beginning.
    The first TV station was founded in 1928. It was in New York. Only a few people have a TV. Broadcasts are not meant to be watched. They show Felix the Cat dolls for two hours a day. The doll is spinning on the record player. They are experimenting. It took years to fix it. In the late 1930s, the TV worked well. America got its first taste at the 1939 World Exhibition. This was one of the biggest events ever. There are 200 small, black and white TVs around the exhibition. U.S. President give a speech on TV. The TV is only five inches large but people like it.
