A Little About Me
For as long as I can remember, I have been reading. My mom says that I taught myself to read at the age of 3. I believe that. My mother would read me a story every night before bed and from a very early age I was in love with books.
As a kid I loved The Berenstain Bears. I can still remember the thrill of a new book being released. As I grew older I loved the Babysitters Club, Sweet Valley Twins and anything by R.L. Stine or Christopher Pike.
In university I lost my love for reading. It must have been all those massive history textbooks I had to read. Whenever I had any downtime, the last thing I wanted to be doing was reading. But as soon as I began reading for pleasure again, my love came back right away.
Now my reading interests are extremely varied. I love British chick lit, biographies, cookbooks and books about nutrition, Africa and getting organized. But I'll read anything that sounds interesting. And don't get me started on my magazine obsession! I love the Toronto Public Library System. I get all of my books from there, because if I were to buy half of the books I want to read, my husband would make me get a job. And I love being a stay at home mum.
With a 3 year old and a 6 month old it's hard to find the time to read as much as I would like. I try my best to read a book a week, often curling up at the end of a very busy day with a good book and a cup of tea!
