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

If you're ever struggling to get your youngsters to read a book, this little girl might provide them with a bit of inspiration.

For five-year-old Sophia Moss has read an incredible 875 books in just one school year!

Sophia, from Lake Charles, Louisiana, U.S., 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.

In the understatement of the year, Sophia told her local news station: "I just like reading!"

Sophia's father, Carl, admitted that sometimes her love of reading can get in the way of life.

"She'd be reading instead of sleeping," he said. "She loves to read and she does it all the time."
