It's A Part Of Me.

I love to read, it is something I always did as a child and still do. When I was a kid and still could not read, I would act like I could in front of my teachers, memorizing the story and reciting it. Such habit made me well known around them as a really intelligent and imaginative child.

As of today, although I don't have a really extensive record of read books, I plan to read more when I get the chance. I am a devote fan of George R. R. Martin and wish to own and read all his books (all of them).

Reading is really important for me because it expands my vocabulary and imagination, as well as making me familiar with certain concepts and points of view, which all are crucial reasons to perfect my writing.

I have always loved to read. I think my fondest memories are of my library teacher from 1st to 6th grade. That little room filled with books, and she would find the most wonderful books to read to us. I was a slow reader, I guess I still am compared to some people.
But I can't understand people who don't read. When I find this out about them, it becomes a flaw in their character. How could people not read, I even read the cereal boxes, I read something every day.

Thank you so much for your comment!
Yes, I do believe that reading is a crucial part of being human. Like you, I read everything I have at hand, let it be cereal boxes, shampoo bottles, instruction manuals and so on.
My first teacher used to read us kids stories and she had a red-cover book about children's tales that told the story of the Three Bears, written by Robert Southey. That was the book I memorized and made it look like I was reading from it.
I am also a devoted writer. I write anything: poems, stories and even finished a 500 page book over a year and a half. I love everything about reading and writing, and I can only hope to someday be able to give it 100% of my time.
Knowledge is valuable, and what better way to get it than books?
