I couldn’t help it, I was helpless when it came to one thing like I had no power to stop it, so I knew I was hooked. I was addicted to words and I didn’t know how to stop my addiction.
Picking up a book was like an aphrodisiac for me because I wouldn’t be able to stop until I had read the last word.
People around me complain that I pay them no attention when I hold a book in my hand and I’d pick a day home with a book over a day at the beach anytime.
Truth is, I knew I was probably not wired like the regular person but I really didn’t care. I loved to read and it’s part of what makes me who I am, unique.
