I loved reading when I was younger.  It was a wonderful way to experience adventures without leaving my own yard.  I especially loved The Boxcar Children and Harriet the Spy.  My mom's name is Harriet, and I thought it was cool that there was a book with her name in the title!  I read my brother's Hardy Boys books, but I wasn't a big Nancy Drew fan.  I pretty much read anything I could get my hands on, and I visited our local library at least once a week.  I still read quite a bit when time permits, and I love all kinds of books except science fiction.  My husband is also an avid reader, and he is the science fiction buff.  Our son is also a reader, and he enjoys many different types of books including the classics such as The Odyssey and The Iliad.  I cannot imagine a life without books!  I don't know what I would do if I couldn't read!
