I've always been a reader. We traveled a lot when I was a child and I would entertain myself on the long car trips with a stack of books. It is a hobby that has continued on into adulthood.

My parents bought me lots of books growing up so I spent a great amount of my time reading. So I guess I've always been a reader, just haven't realized it until lately.

Yes I was. In my childhood my parents had to actually take my books away and ground me to the outside. In the 2nd grade I was reading at I believe 5th and 6th grade reading levels, however I wasn't able to choose what books I wanted to read so I started acting out, and purposely failing my reading quizzes. apparently the teacher told my mother I was stupid and needed testing done to see if I needed help. once my mother pointed out she was making the wrong choice of forcing me to read books below my personal reading level the teacher realized I was in no way stupid and she recanted her statement. even my year and a half of college was dedicated to becoming an English teacher, but now with a 9 month old baby who was born premature I stay home. I was struggling with what to do with myself until I found this site and this community. Thank you guys for being here!
