I always loved to read since I was a child

I remember being six years old and my class was learning to read and there were some children who struggled, it was something that was so natural for me. I loved books my entire life and I love learning new things. I remember my elementary school had a reading club for children who struggled with reading and my class had an opportunity to be a guest for the club for a week each and I waited to get to go and when my name was called I was thrilled because I got to go and do something I loved which was reading. I also remember taking a book out for recess and lunch with me and I would sit in the swing and gently swing back and forth while reading my book or sit down under a tree in the back of the playground where I knew it was quiet. I spent my childhood going to the bookstore every Saturday so books were a regular part of my life. And about a decade ago I sat in Barnes and Noble and read a almost 300 page book in one afternoon. There is nothing in the world I love more then sitting somewhere and reading a good book. I would also read the encyclopedia when I was ten years old. I would grab a volume or two and just sit and read it. I was a kid who loved books and I still do and I have so many interests and I have a huge thirst for knowledge. I'm reading about Aristotle and Socrates right now on a online encyclopedia and I may get some books on them soon. I just love books and learning even tho I'm a adult.

Welcome to Similar Worlds. I hope you stick around for a while.
My favourite book from childhood was Where the Wild Things Are.
3 days ago I watched the film version and the memories were wonderful.
3 books I loved are
[b]Gifts of Unknown Things by Lyall Watson.[/b]
Discover the extraordinary island of Nus Tarian, in Indonesia, where everyday reality contains terrifying, inexplicable, and miraculous phenomena. Magical feats, extrasensory perception, and psychic healing are commonplace in this land where the natural and the supernatural coexist and challenge our beliefs about reality.
At once a scientific exploration and an imaginative adventure, Dr. Watson's astonishing and life-transforming journey becomes our own, challenging many of our fixed beliefs about the "real world."
[b]House of the Dead - Fyodor Dostoevsky[/b]
A haunting and remarkable work filled with wonder and resignation, The House of the Dead ranks among the Russian novelist's greatest masterpieces. Of this powerful autobiographical novel, Tolstoy wrote, "I know no better book in all modern literature."
[b]Somerset Maugham - Of Human Bondage[/b]
From a tormented orphan with a clubfoot, Philip Carey grows into an impressionable young man with a voracious appetite for adventure and knowledge.
His cravings take him to Paris at age eighteen to try his hand at art, then back to London to study medicine.
But even so, nothing can sate his nagging hunger for experience. Then he falls obsessively in love, embarking on a disastrous relationship that will change his life forever.…

Similarly with me!

I still have a book given to me when Dad's work move to a new town some 100 miles away when I was six, meant a complete family move, and my leaving my original Infants' School for a new one.

The book is signed by my teacher, with the advice to "Keep on reading." So I did!

My father had high hopes for me. Bought me a encyclopedia set when I was three years old. Didn't really start reading until I got into the military though. Yet never stopped since.

There was absolutely no other entertainment in the field in the military. 😆

I used to be teased for reading so much at lunch and recess. The other kids thought I was nerdy it was something that I loved to do there was no other explanation.
