Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved to read. Books always take me to another world. They bring me out of my own life and put me into someone else's. When I was 5 years old, my parents got divorced. I had to deal with change and the process of gaining two whole new families. I didn't quite know how to deal with that. I tried sports, art, and then I just kept to myself. But when I was in 4th grade, books became a huge part of my life. I would read anything I could get my hands on. My grandmothers, my mother, and just about everyone else in my family loved to read. My mother, nana, and I would get up and have "book club" in her formal living room during the summer, and when I was with my Grandmother, we would trade books and talk about our favorites. Going back and forth between my parents house, I would have to bring 3 or 4 books just so I would never run out of worlds to explore. But two years ago, I got the greatest gift I have ever received, my kindle. Although my brothers thought it was a lame Christmas gift, I was over the moon. I could finally have access to any book whenever I wanted, wherever I wanted. My kindle allows me to dive into someone else's story and helps me expand my knowledge. When I am curious about a particular event in history or how something works, I can go into the kindle store and find a book about it. As of right now I'm reading Grey's Anatomy, a medical dictionary. In real print it's like 1,000 pages, yet on my kindle, it's as thick as a tablet. By being able to read this book anywhere, I am able to expand my knowledge on my favorite subject, the human body. My kindle aids me even more than regular books because whenever I'm curious about something, or when I want to read a book that's not practical to carry around, I can just pick it up and read. From this capability, the kindle will aid me in my later life, such as when I become a Neurosurgeon.
