There once was a girl who loved reading so much she would read 5 books at one time. She would read one chapter from a book, set it down, and read a chapter from another book.
She loved reading so much she began to write her own stories and plays. She lived for the Scholastic book order and read some of her favorite books over and over again.
She later grew up to major in English in college because writing about great books was the best thing ever! But then her life got side-tracked and she lost her love of reading. Too many textbooks and not enough fun reads makes reading a chore.
If you can’t tell already, I am talking about me! I was an avid reader as a child but started to stray away from it in my adult years. I wanted to get back in the habit of reading so I set a goal to read 40 books by my 40th birthday. (Read more about that here!)
I’m proud to say that I am back in the habit of reading and it is one of my favorite hobbies.
