I have always enjoyed reading, whether I am reading strictly for pleasure or for studying something. When I was a kid, I would borrow books from the library, read them all in two weeks, and then return the books back to the library and borrow more books. I would do that more during the summer when I had more time to do so. I don't quite read that much now, but I certainly do read something everyday. I start each day by drinking coffee and reading the newspaper. That time is my favorite part of the day.
I am currently reading the book 11/22/63 by Stephen King. Mr. King is known for his horror books, but this book is a science fiction book. The main character is able to travel back in time, and his mission is to stop the assassination of President Kennedy. One day last week I was reading one passage where I found that I could not read the passage fast enough. I could not turn to the next page fast enough. However, I did pause enough in my reading to realize that I was having fun, a lot of fun. I was really enjoying myself. It was like I was on a roller coaster, and I wanted the vehicle to go faster and faster on the tracks. The faster I went, the more I liked it. It was quite a feeling. It reminded me how I much I like to read. You almost can say reading is a passion of mine. I just don't read at home. I like to go to Starbucks or Barnes & Noble, get a Vanilla Latte, and read a book or magazine. If I go with someone to a shopping mall, while that person is looking around in a store or actually shopping, I will find a place to sit and read with another Vanilla Latte. Now that I have a Nook Simple Touch, I am reading even more. At least for me, reading is fun.
