“Where do you like to read?”
I could read anywhere.
Curled up on the couch, in a coffee shop, sitting in a closet.
[yes. Sitting in a closet.]
To be fair I was in middle-school. It was my little haven. And it was quiet.
[And I was in middle school.]
ok. Maybe not anywhere. The shower would make the paper soggy. [Yuck. Wet Paper]
I’ve always had a love of reading ever since I was little.
I was always the girl inside reading a book, when everyone else is outside.
I donated my books in fourth grade. I wanted to create a library for our class. I put little checkout books in the back, and classmates could check out the books. I mean.
[I’m pretty sure those little checkout cards don’t exist anymore. I feel old, but still kinda cool.]
I wrote a play in sixth grade about a girl who was evil. My mom blames Stephen King.
I might or might not have been reading The Dark Towers. Ok. Yea. [it was dark.]
Remember Christopher Pike books. They we’re good. Does he still write books?
Don’t get me started on R.L Stine’s “Goosebumps”. You know there’s a movie coming out?!
[There’s a movie coming out] Seriously. Goosebumps.
Reading is like a great escape. I can be the lead heroine. I am the adventurer. Sup Indiana. I can solve the Nancy Drew mystery. I can hang out with hamlet, and chill with the cat with his Hat. I can be a fearless stubborn lawyer in the next Grisham novel, or be a doctor saving lives in the trenches. Just sitting over here [Making magic] at Hogwarts or [fighting crime] in Gotham.
You can travel anywhere or be anyone. By turning a page. [thats crazy]
All from my couch, coffee shop, or closet.
Reading is a wonderful way to use our imagination.
[No matter how old we are.]
I’d love to volunteer to kids at the hospital or animals at the shelter. Reading can really inspire & help others. It can allow people hope. It can give them an escape. I think I shall look into that.
Which by the way ..
.. I haven’t read a good book In awhile [my husband has gotten me into books on tape]
I picked this up recently :
“Serafina & the Black Cloak” by Robert Beatty
I really like it.
It’s engaging, imaginative , & magical.
The author signed the book, at a local signing, and [he was so nice .]
If you like [mystery]books with a dash of [history]with a strong [female] lead & a hint of [magic]
What book are you reading?
And where do you like to read?
I’m on the hunt for all the good books!
Quirky and reading so many chapters,
