Book Blogger Hop (8)

Book Blogger Hop
When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?

Probably around Primary 2, I think. I was so proud of being able to read chapter books that I devoured them day after day. The six-year-old me loved the feeling of being able to do something everybody else couldn't (everybody else was still on picture books). As I read more and more and grew more arrogant, I realised I loved reading. I'd read so much that I couldn't bear to stop. My parents were really happy I liked to read, but I couldn't get a lot of books because of my awkward location.

  1. Love your answer to this week's question! I was an advanced reader as well. I love the fact that there are some people out there with similar stories to mine and who love reading as much as I do! :)

  2. I was the same way, I could read long before I started school, so I was known as a real bookworm!

  5. When did I first realize I loved reading? I wish I could prove a pre-natal predilection towards books but my memories don’t stretch back quite that far.

    The earliest memories I can recall involved books. First having them read to me then reading them on my own the minute I had the ability.

    Books have been a major part of my life ever since. My passion for the written word knowing no bounds, I started writing books on top of reading them about ten years ago.

  8. I was also pretty smug as a child when I realised I could read sooo much better than the other kids. Well, when you're terrible at sports, what else do you have? :-)
