I love books. I have since I was about seven or eight. I was a rotten kid, so I spent a *lot* of time grounded. I had no tv, and pretty much had to spend my time in my room or outside doing chores. This left me a lot of time on my hands. Luckily for me, my parents always let me go to the library (even if I was grounded). This became my escape. It also ended up as a boon when I got older – I read faster than my classmates, had better retention, and read at a higher level. Small favors I guess!
Since then, I haven’t given up on my love for reading. Before I had children of my own, I read a book a week – minimum. Now, I read at a slower pace (and split things up between the written word and audiobooks). One of my favorite things is still spending time in a good bookstore or library. Add in a bit of the labyrinthine and I am a truly happy camper.
