I caught the writing bug later in life. It stems from my love of reading. As a child, my interests gravitated toward music and art. I spent hours either learning new songs on guitar or drawing and sketching on my art pad. I enjoyed playing outside and having fun with my friends, but I could be just as happy sitting for hours quietly by myself reading a book.
— C.S. Lewis
Reading always has been one of my greatest pleasures. More often than not, I find myself in a crowded room of chatting people, completely lost in a book and ignorant to almost all ongoing conversation. It is always in these moments I can expect to be asked what I am reading and for my cheeks to redden, as my response lets everyone know I am obsessed with children’s literature.
Did you get an e-reader as a holiday gift? I know I was excited as I opened a Kindle Fire Christmas morning. I reluctantly set it aside, though, to prepare dinner for guests. It wasn’t until the following evening that I escaped, my new e-reader tucked under my arm. For the next several hours, I downloaded my favorite apps.
