    Since I Was Little!!

    I didn't always like to read, and I'll admit it. But when I was 9, my dad rented a movie that I didn't much care for (still don't), Clan of the Cave Bear. However, I fell in love with the book, and it took me a while to get through it the first time. I always got that book...

    I Read Too Much.

    Most of the time when I say I read too much, people think I'm bragging. I'm not, I'm serious. If you're reading this, you probably know what I mean. When I was five I learned to read, and I loved it. Back then it was a good thing to curl up with a book. I read more than most five...
