I have always loved reading. My first book, a lot of peoples first book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I think I perused that when I was 2 and I've been reading ever since.
Nothing makes me happier than to sit with a good book and just loose myself. Be it in college, in a coffee shop or a bench in the park, I could sit for hours. Reading is a very important part of my life. With not being much of a mathematician, my ability to understand and appreciate literature gives me a sense of achievement and worth.
Which isn't silly at all.
It just made school and exams so much easier for me and I'm thankful for that. And off I go to read 'The Book Thief' for the fifth time...
Re-reading a book is much more fulfilling than re-watching a movie.
