    The Passion Of Reading!

    For a while I could not read because of the lack of time. I felt that I could not breathe anymore. I had the feeling that something is missing in my life, without knowing exactly what it was. And than I woke up like from a bad dream and I started reading again like I used to do...

    Do You Not...?

    I grew up in not the most ideal conditions for a person who becomes highly literate, but that did not stop me from not only getting good at reading, but burying my nose in a book whenever I could. I also learned how things worked, how to fix things, did chores, learned to take...

    Words To Me

    Words to me weave another world. They make it seem like I'm another person doing some amazing thing or living some interesting life. They pulled me in who knows how long ago and haven't let me out since. I'm addicted to books, and I'll never overdose.
