Schoolgirl, 5, reads 875 books in just one school year

A five-year-old schoolgirl has read 875 books in just one school year.

Sophia Moss, from Lake Charles, Louisiana, reads a book nearly every day.

She has finished reading most of the books in the kindergarten and first grade section of the T.S. Cooley Elementary library.

A log of all the books she had read demonstrates how her hobby has gathered speed in the past few months.

'A lot of the days I read books. It's just a couple days I don't read,' Sophia told KPLCTV. 'I just like reading!'

'This is very unusual for a kindergartner, especially to read this many books in a year's time. Very unusual,' said Librarian Mary Lanier.

Sophia's father, Carl is supportive of his daughter's avid hobby, but admitted that sometimes her love of reading can get in the way of life.

'She'd be reading instead of sleeping,' Carl explains.

'She loves to read and she does it all the time.'

The kindergartner's capacity to devour books has risen quickly -  she used check out books five books every week from the school library -  that has risen to 20 each week, reported the news channel.
