A nine-year-old voracious reader in the UK has managed to read an incredible 364 books in just seven months.

Faith, of Ashley, Cheshire, shuns TV and computer games,

preferring to settle down with a Roald Dahl or Harry Potter.

Faith developed her love for books at an early age after

she was encouraged to read more by teachers at her primary

school, 'the 'Daily Express' reported.

"Faith says reading is just as stimulating as TV or computer games because you have to use your imagination rather than let the screen conjure it up for you," said Faith's

mother, Lauren.

"I mostly like books with animals or magic or adventures in them. But my life is not all about books," Faith said.

"I do four hours of gymnastics every week, do karate classes, play netball and I'm learning to play the drums," she said.
