I Love Reading
I like to read haha, shockingly enough. I've always loved reading ever since me and my sister (who is Ryuu here on EP) were little and we had to read our parents little laminated words from the "word tin" followed by the latest chapter of whatever "Biff and Chip" book we were reading at the time.
I remember reading the Hobbit with my mum when I was eight or nine, my auntie got me this beautiful illustrated copy for Christmas and me and my mum read eachother a little bit ever night, it took us like two years but it was worth it!
I don't understand people who think that watching a film is better than reading the book of it, I get completely absorbed when I'm reading, you get hours of pleasure, and in my head I can see the characters perfectly and I can here their voices and its almost like I'm there with them! You can't do that with a film, and the way they cast the parts almost never lives up to my imagination.
I think that's what drew me to drama, I get to act the charaters that I imagine, exactly how I imagine them! My friends don't get it, when we were 11 or 12 they were out on their bikes and I was reading "Pride and Prejudice" (a book that I have read so much it recently disintigrated) and "Little Women".
Books are magical and nothing beats the feeling of losing yourself in someone elses' story!
