Blogger, Writer, and Mother in the United States
I have an incurable addiction to books that started when I learned to read using the Dick and Jane Readers in first grade. I’m constantly reading something, and my Kindle is always within reach, ready to transport me to that magical place that can only be found within the pages of a book.
I believe reading is not only an escape from the stresses of life, but also a necessity. When we read, we broaden our horizons and learn about the world. We strengthen our empathy and compassion for others in our life when we connect with well written characters and their struggles. It also gives readers the ability to think outside the box, considering infinite possibilities when we read science fiction or other books with futuristic settings.
The wealth of knowledge and entertainment found in books is a beautiful gift that I am always grateful to receive. My lifelong passion for reading is the foundation of who I am, and the reason I became a book blogger.
