I do read. I read at like a 6th grade level in grade 1.
1. Alice in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll: This is a book you get immersed in. You simply get lost & drown in the wonder & imagination. I have read & read & read this book over & over again…
2. Tales of Mystery & Imagination - Edgar Allan Poe: It may be cheating but it’s a book & I own it. I may or may not have sort of stolen it. A substitute teacher in grade 4 saw how bored I was with reading books for my own age group & he bought this to school to lend to me. He stayed a week & I never gave it back. I just had to keep it. That’s so bad & I get that, but I treasure it. Mr Nothling is the teacher who lent it to me. I would love to try & give it back (& hope he’d say no, you keep it.) That would be a much better story. :)
3. Scar Tissue - Anthony Kiedis: The autobiography of the lead singer of Redd Hot Chili Peppers. It’s an amazing story how that man lived his life & how he came to be the person he is today. I love reading, it inspires me. I have never tried drugs but after reading this book, I feel like I know what it is truly like & why I never want to experience that. Ever.
