I have had a passion for reading (not necessarily writing) since I was able to. I remember before I could make out what the words meant I begged to have books read to me. My parents actually bought me a talking mother goose that would play tapes and I could follow along with a companion book.
Currently I pick up anything with History: countries, wars, people, plants, anything! I am facinated by books and try to keep my summer reading list up to 10, but there just doesn't seem to be enough time between two jobs.
I would love recommendations about books, although I am not a fan of science fiction UNLESS it has some sort of social experiment or change, then its just the same 'ole stories to me.
Hope people out there have the same kind of love for books and internet, then we can chat about the passion. ;)
