I adore reading books. Reading anything really, a well written cereal box can hold my attention, at least for a little while. :) I used to read the newspaper from start to finish too. My favorite book growing up as a child was this:
I still have it and love to look at it every once in a while. The illustrations are wonderful.
The first book I remember reading on my own was this one:
I remember reading a lot of Beverly Cleary's book after enjoying this one so much!
I'm partial to mysteries and thrillers now. But any well-written book with meaningful characters will keep me up late into the night. I got a Kindle for Christmas this year and wasn't sure about. I hadn't asked for it, DH surprised me with it. I love the feel (and smell!) of a book in my hands and wasn't sure about this little electronic device. I downloaded a book and am happy to say, I love it. I love the convenience of throwing it in my purse and not have it way 5 pounds. I love that it keeps track of what page I'm on. I love that if I finish a book I'm only a download away from another. Will I give up reading paper books? Not a chance! I love the turn of a page. I adore book stores and libraries. I can spend hours in both if I let myself.
Reading is a life-long adventure for me. In honor of that, I give you my ode to a good book.
