Re: what are you reading?

That nose in a book thing...I can relate...you have no idea how many
light poles and walls I've run into in my life 'cuz I can't seem to get
my nose out of a book! :-)

Subject: Re: [CHAT] what are you reading?

Same here Melody....books were my escape out of my dysfunctional family
<br>life. I lived my life in books. I would read until 3:00 in the
morning and <br>my mother would come in my room and yell at me to turn
the lights out and go <br>to BED! I was an advanced reader in school
too. When I lived in Enid, <br>Oklahoma and received my first library
card, I thought I had died and gone <br>to Heaven. Then we moved to a
more rural area...and no big library. BUT <br>the book mobile came to
our school and I was the first in line and checked <br>out the maximum
amount of books every single time. I can't imagine life <br>without
books. I was reading to my children at a very, very young age. I
<br>think that makes a big difference. Two of my three children do not
like to <br>read now (I can't understand that at all) but the one who
looks the most <br>like me (Brianna) is a book worm. And my stepdaughter
(the youngest) has <br>her nose in a book all the time.<br><br><br>Jesse

is something so basic to my life that I fear for my sanity<br>>should I
ever lose my sight...it seems to me that no one ever had to<br>>really
show me how to read...I distinctly remember picking up the Dick<br>>and
Jane books in first grade and somehow what was on those pages
just<br>>made sense to me...one of the truly memorable moments of my
life was<br>>getting my first library card at the public library a few
weeks later. I<br>>will never forget the intense feeling of awe and
sheer joy that card<br>>gave me...literally a passport out of the hell
my childhood was into as<br>>many worlds of magic as I could read...by
middle of first grade I had<br>>been moved into the third grade reading
classes, by the time I hit 7th<br>>grade they no longer had enough for
me to read and so put

me in an<br>>independent study program...it was great since it meant I
had access to<br>>any book in the public library system I wanted to
read. Finished most of<br>>the "classics" long before I hit high
school...so it seems strange to me<br>>that these days most of my
reading consists of the trashiest romance<br>>novels I can find...the
more lurid sex the better! :-) But truth be<br>>told, I'll read just
about anything I can lay my hands on...I love<br>>murder mysteries,
anything to do with serial killers, science fiction,<br>>romance,
classics, etc...I guess I'm just an indiscriminate reader. A<br>>couple
of years ago, one of our local thrift stores went out of
business<br>>and the owner gave away all of the paperbacks in the
store...in one<br>>hour, I carried out over 500 romance novels...took me
less than a year<br>>and a half to read them all...truly wish I'd had
time to make a second<br>>stop before she closed her store for good.
Right now I'm reading Thomas<br>>Gifford's The Assassini, a murder
mystery that concerns the Catholic<br>>Church.<br>><br>><br>>Melody, IA

parents<br>> when I was a pre teen. Very much a<br>>mix... Arabian
nights, Bullfinch<br>> mythology, Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew,<br>>Verne, De
Maupassant. It was like dying<br>> and going to heaven. Took<br>>the box
and stayed hidden all summer reading it<br>> all. The Tarzan<br>>book
was one of a series and I remember being very<br>> disappointed
at<br>>the time over the "to be continued". And this summer I got<br>>
