I love to read. I love books, magazines, Wikipedia articles, websites — I love it all. My mom runs marketing at a book publishing company, so she either brainwashed me or she introduced me to reading at exactly the right time. It’s my favorite thing to do. I know it doesn’t make me sound cool, but I couldn’t care less about that. Because when I read, I travel to different times and places, with characters who feel like my friends. Sometimes I get so lost in a book that I look up — and hours have passed. Then the only thing that makes me put my book down is my rumbling stomach! I’m a very strong student, and I think my love of reading helps me in school — because, while other kids race through their assignments, I read every single word. I don’t know if I will be an author when I grow up, because I’m just not sure if I have my own stories to tell. But for now, I will happily curl up in my reading nook and read the day away.
