I became a reader to escape my childhood. Now, my life is so terrific, I find it hard to find time to read!
I can't remember ever not being a reader. My mother says I learned to read at 3 and just took off with it. It has always been my favorite form of entertainment. My parents are also readers but not at the same scope I am. There were always books at the house, and we didn't watch much TV or many movies (these still remain a 2nd tier source of entertainment for me). The library trips were the highlight of my week or month.
