LONDON - Instead of spending endless hours watching TV or playing computer games, Faith Jackson chooses to read.

And she has read 364 books in just seven months. That's almost two books a day.

Jackson, 9, prefers a daily intake of Secret Seven and Famous Five to British TV's Four O'Clock Club and Bear Behaving Badly.

The youngster has been hailed a real-life 'Matilda' after the book-loving Crunchem Hall schoolgirl created by author Roald Dahl, Daily Mail reported.
