For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved to read. In my younger days I read things like the Berenstein Bears and Clifford the Big Red Dog and progressed to reading the Fear Street books by R.L. Stine ( I completely skipped over Goosebumps). In junior high I was already reading Young Adult books by Christopher Pike and L.J. Smith (who is still one of my favorite authors of all time). By the time I was in high school, I was reading adult Fantasy novels like The Sword of Truth and the Wheel of Time. I never really stop reading, though I may take short breaks. Once I started working in high school and had my own income, buying books became almost a hobby. I was always in a bookstore. Today, I have more books than I know what to do with and so many to read it would likely take me a couple years to get through them all.
