“I devour books”. That’s all that I can say to put it in simple words. I literally live on them.
By the age of 8, I had completed the entire ‘Magic Tree House’ series (a series I recommend to all young readers) and had already started reading the Percy Jackson and Harry Potter series. Though my friends read books like ‘The Secret Seven’ or ‘Malory Towers’, I was never really intersect in those kinda books.
Now, I am 15. I have long finished the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson series (the Percy Jackson movies suck might I add?). For the past year and half, though, I’ve been reading my way through the Young Adult Contemporary section of the library.
Around a year ago, my mother refused to let me buy anymore books. Why? Because there was simply NO more space to keep them! You were sure to be wonked on the head with a falling book if you opened any cupboard or drawer in my room.
That’s when I became a member of a library. In no less than a few months, I was done reading all the books that they had to offer in the YA category. Then started my obsession with my Kindle. For me, it was honestly the easiest thing to do – I could get a book within seconds with just a few clicks!
This obsession continues till date (Yay!). There are many people who don’t understand me – to them I’m “crazy” for wasting my time over a book while I could simply watch its movie – but I’m absolutely fine by that. While my mother’s friends complain about how their children refuse to even touch a book, my mother, on the other hand, complains about how her daughter refuses to take her nose out of her book.
In short, I think that any one who knows me – REALLY knows me – knows exactly how much I love reading and has accepted me for who I am – a quintessential bookworm.
