I started reading at 3 years old
by kindergarten I was reading novels like The Black Arrow
in first grade I got in trouble for reading
and got many an NS (Not Satisfactory, the equivalent of an F)
on my report card
reading truly brought me to the worlds that the words described
the words gave me the images 
they transported me and I could see everything vividly
it is why I love to read
because I experience everything I read as if it is me
I am reading about
that I am the one on the adventure
