Self Portrait Tuesday: Exploring Identity

I love reading. In elementary school I was the "Royal Reader". I would read book after book and write little reports on them and get Royal Reader certificates. My favorite books my mom still has are the Ramona Quimby books and a book called "Lizza Lou". Later on I really got into Stephen King. Now I'm into anything that can grab me in the first 2 pages, and that I can read fast. If I don't like it within the first chapter I'll stop reading it. Last night at the library I picked up "The Tattoo Artist" by Jill Cimnet and "Fallen" by David Maine. I keep a little journal, whenever someone recommends a book, I write it down. When I finish a book I write a few thoughts on it. I also love reading magazines. Oprah, Organic Style, National Geographic, Martha. If a book is really good I will get a little choked up when I read the last sentence, even if it's a happy book.

We have this in common. I'm a voracious reader and always have been. When I started on novels, it was Stephen King all the way. I'm in 2 bookclubs and that has opened me to reading a lot of books I either didn't want to read or never heard of. I hope to pass my love of books and reading to my girl.

I probably subscribe to more magazines than anyone should (that isn't a doctor's office!) and it runs the gammet on what types I get.

I love books and magazines. Stacks and stacks of both. And the Hello Kitty pajama pants are a nice touch.

i'm the same way...and sometimes after a really, really good book i can't start a new book for awhile because it all needs to sink in and i'm not quite ready to let go of the book i just finished.

great, great pic!

My self-portrait would look very similar! I love books and I get frustrated when I look at my list of books to read--there are just too many!
