    It Started In 2nd Grade

    I used to HATE reading, but in 2nd grade I started reading a series called the magic treehouse series (I don't know if people know that kid fantasy series). I started reading more and more, I couldn't stop. In one of the books I was opened up to art work. In one of the books...

    whole different world it's just me. But it feels like I'm actually in the book with the people.

    I have more than 6,000 books in my personal

    library. I have read at least 90% of them. The other 10% are in various stages of having been read. I have nearly 150 books next to my bed that I am in the middle of now. I recently bought a Nook (because I am running out of space for books in my house). While I now have 24...

    Books are the only way for me to escape life sometimes. It allows me to live in a fantasy world and allows me to forget whatever that is happening in reality.

    When I was in middle school I was bullied

    I'm an English professor

    and I've always loved books. I'm always amazed by people who don't like to read because for me, books serve as the gateway to so many things. When I finally buy/build my dream house, it's going to have a library so I can spend my free time reading in my own private space.

    I'm a binge reader. Books work on me like drugs.

    When I delve into a good book I'm instantly teleported into a totally different sphere I don't want to get out from. A sometimes pleasurable, sometimes magical, sometimes even painfully tragic other world. A world I like escaping to from my uneventful, routinised grossly...

    Reading has been a lifelong thing

    for me. Words were a point of bonding with my mom. She would always get the dictionary ans sit with me to define new words. If I still didn't understand she would explain it to me, but we always went to that first book. She said that the act of looking for the words was better...

    Books are my way of escaping reality into a

    fantasy where I become more than what I can even dream to be. A good book can keep me up for hours at a time, and I'm always up for a good conversation about them. My favorite reads are fiction.
