My 2nd grade teacher wrote my mom a note, “Sheila has a very vivid imagination.”
In 3rd grade at the end of the year I received the bookworm award.
I’m not ashamed. It is all true. I love to read. And I love to read a wide variety of styles. They take me to far away lands, to adventures and miracles… I have books available to me everywhere. I am never without one close by.
I have built friendships off of book discussions. I love to strike up conversations with people I see reading a book I have either read or wanted to read. In one case, I did not make a friend. In Costa Rica on vacation a few years back I seen a man at the pool reading a book that I had read. His was in a different language but I recognized the book so asked him how he was enjoying the read. He looked at me like he found a bug in his water bottle. I smiled and left.
A couple weeks ago while a friend and I were walking the Christmas House Tour, she was ooh and ahhing about the beautiful antiques and home design, I on the other hand.. was checking out what these people had on their book shelves.
Last week I was watching a tv show where two people were shopping in a book store and bought the same book. I found the book on Amazon, found the background on the book to be fascinating and it came in the mail today.
I think I will go read.
