Once Upon A Time There Was A Book Worm...
When I was younger I loved reading. There was something very invigorating to me about getting a new book. When I would chose a book, it was usually a fantasy story of some sort. Those tales seemed to be able to lift me up, and take me to another world.
When I entered high school, and went on to college I lost most of my love for reading. On a regular basis, I was assigned books that I had no interest in, and life left little spare time for reading enjoyable novels.
I am still trying to regain my past love for the simple joy of reading. I wish to recapture the relaxation I felt when soaking in a book, resting in between the branches of our backyard apple tree, surrounded by blossoms and the occasional bee.
I believe reading is good for the mind and soul, it is satisfying and pleasant to do so as well. I also feel getting children to love reading early, and to help them stay faithful to books as they grow up, is very important, and will effect their character as they develop into adults.
People need interesting, well written books, and for myself this particularly true. As I find these good books, my relationship with them slowly rekindles, and surely this relationship will soon transform into the great love I used to know. If you haven't enjoyed a book for a while, find a book that sparks a love for reading in you, in the end, you will be happy you did.
