Children your age should be reading at least 4 times a week for 15 minutes or more. This is because it helps develop your vocabulary and widen your imagination. Therefore, to keep you reading, I have collated some websites which you can use to access ebooks and audiobooks.
These are free to access. Some require a login or registering; if they do, I have added some instructions to help you with this. You can, of course, read books you have at home.
Click the logo of the website to access these books.
