I love reading books. I started early. I have always been a reader for as long as I can remember. My mother was the first person who introduced me to my love as she encouraged me to start reading books by bringing home a different book for me every week. The first book I remember reading on my own was a book about colours. To this day I still tell my mom that she is the reason I love reading books so much. I remember being fascinated by books even while reading the books that came in the simplest forms, such as one word books. I would pick up a picture book with a few words here and there and from then on up until now, I was hooked on books. As a matter of fact, I used to love reading books so much as a child that I would ask my mom to take me down to the bookstore so I could buy more books and I still do that.
Reading is an almost magical thing and to be honest, I find it quite enjoyable as well as relaxing. If you sit down with a good book to read, it is as if you can go to an entirely different world, and be in a world of your own for a few hours. When you’re so deeply engrossed in a book, you’ll notice that books have that amazing ability to transport you, evoking different feelings.
Favourite authors to me are the authors who I have in the past maintained a consistent effort in reading their books. To me, a favourite author is one you regularly and thoroughly enjoys reading books from – at most, if not all of the books they’ve written. These are the authors I keep up with and enjoy reading books from whenever there’s a newly released book.
Do you enjoy reading books? What kind of books do you like to read and who’s your favourite author/authors? Let’s talk about them now.
I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words 8th – 14th December 2013 and the theme is books.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
