Way back in elementary school, I was not as familiar with the computer as I am now. That was a very good thing. I used to read all kinds of books to pass the time, and I was constantly hauling all sorts of books home from my frequent trips to the library. I was hooked on the excitement and uneasiness I felt when reading a good book. I wish I could say the same about me now, but things like TV and the internet have taken over my free time. I joined TeenReads so that I could get into the habit of reading again. I hope that I can enjoy reading just as much as I did in the past.
