When i was a child, I would describe myself as a reader, not an avid reader, nor bookworm, just a reader.
I read when I needed to, at school and with my mum at home, that was basically all.
I became close to giving up reading, until I discovered reading online, on websites such as Quizilla and FictionPress. These stories were written not by author's but my fellow peers. For me the stories were simplier to read.
Due to to these stories, I got a very werid obsession with vampires, as they were the hype of these websites, and in 2008 my sister told me about this book turned film about vampires: 'Twilight'. The moment I watched the film, I knew I needed to read the book, and that I did, which obviously resulted in me reading rest of the series, and finding a love of reading once again come back, but this time I could read these books and understand them completely. It wasn't long til I became the obsessive reader, I call myself today.
Reading is probably the best thing which has ever happened to me, and I hope it's a hobby and love I manage to keep for years and years.
How did you become a reader?
