I have enjoyed a lifelong love of reading. My younger brother and I spent hours in our grandfather’s lap while he would read to us. I remember feeling so proud and happy when I finally was able to read Danny Loves Dinosaurs all by myself! A Wrinkle in Time and Rebecca of SunnyBrook Farm were also some of my early favorites. I have never outgrown my special love of Science Fiction and Fantasy stories and doubt I ever will although my overall reading tastes today are really quite diverse. I like to have a variety of books in different genres on hand so I can always have a book available to match my mood.
I like reads which flow smoothly and logically from one point to the next. I like authors who take me into their worlds; who can cast the line and hook me with their ideas. I'll go almost anywhere in my imagination through books but the author must set it up and make it believable. I confess, though, I read more for pleasure and to escape in my thoughts to other places than I do for self-improvement or education.
