Ramblings of a Coffee-Addicted Writer!
I can't remember a time when I haven't been passionately interested in reading, although of course I've had to be involved in other activities from time to time. But I always come back to books. I always need that quiet time with a favorite novel or nonfiction book. Books have such an incredible hold on me! I will always prefer them as gifts, naturally, at any time of the year!
My mom tells a story of how she was able to keep me out of trouble when I was in my "terrible twos". She would simply put me in my playpen, along with a copy of "Reader's Digest". Instead of tearing up the magazine and throwing it around the playpen, as other toddlers might do, I would quietly sit with the magazine on my lap, slowly and carefully turning the pages, looking at all the pictures with rapt attention. When I got tired of this activity, I would then fall asleep, with the magazine at my side. So my interest in books and reading began pretty early. Lol.
I take a book with me everywhere I go. If it's inconvenient to carry one, I have my ebooks on my Kindle app., on my Android phone. This is great when I go get my hair done, especially when I'm having it dyed, because I can then avoid the possibility of my book somehow getting stained with hair color. (Yes, it's happened.)
I have to read every single day, or I actually get cranky. Books are my LIFE. I need them as much as I need to eat, sleep, and carry on other life activities. For me, a day without reading is like a day without joy!
