My Favorite Pastime
Ever since I can remember, since I was just a little girl, before I even knew HOW to read, I have loved books. I still have many of my favorite childhood books, and just looking at them now I can still remember how much I loved them and how I would read them over and over and over again!
Throughout my childhood, my nose was always stuck in a book. I think I read every single book from the Babysitter's Club series and the Sweet Valley High series, along with Goosebumps, Nancy Drew, R.L. Stine, and I'm sure many more that I can't remember!
As a kid, going to the library was one of my favorite things, and now is no different. Books still excite me, and I just love leaving the library with a new stack of books to read, like I did today! I can't wait to start reading them.Right now I mostly read mystery novels, but it's not all I read. My favorite mystery authors are James Patterson, Harlen Coben, Michael Connelly and Jonathan Kellerman. I also really like Nicholas Sparks( I just finished reading Safe Haven and really liked it), and Jodi Picoult.
Reading to me is an escape. When I read, it's like I'm in a different world, and any thoughts, worries, problems or anxieties I may have disappear.
I don't need much. Just give me a good book, a hammock, a nice day, and I'm happy. :)
