I racked my brain for this week's post. Then I looked over to the side and saw I had 5 books from the library stacked up just waiting to be read and it hit me. I love reading!!
I've been reading from a very young age. I was 2 days past my 3rd birthday when my parents and I were taking a trip to Denver, and my mom said I was looking out at the billboards and read "VISA!" That should have been a sign, huh?
From then on, my life was filled with books, magazines, pamphlets...anything I could get my hands on. I read at an exceptionally high level and by first grade was already reading my sisters' high school literature books. [I still have one of them to this day, as my sister "lost" it. Truth is, we were both just in love with the stories in the book.] At 9 years old, I picked up Gone With The Wind for the first time, and to this day it remains one of my favorite books of all time.
I will read just about anything, although I'll admit to not caring much for science fiction and some fantasy books. I adore series books because I enjoy continuing on with characters that I come to love. As a kid, I devoured The Baby-Sitters Club books, Sweet Valley Twins AND Sweet Valley High, Ramona Quimby books, then later a lot of the VC Andrews series, Harry Potter, Left Behind, and currently I'm reading the Stephanie Plum novels, on recommendation from Sophia. I love chick lit books, classics, autobiographies... oh let's face it, I love reading!
I'm also really huge into reading magazines. Yes, actual paper magazines that I can hold in my hand. :-p
I also really like writing, too, but we'll save that for another Thursday when I can't think of anything else.
