I'm a Book Junkie

Hi. My name is Emily and I'm a book junkie.

I don't think I ever really had a fighting chance. You see, my mom read when she was pregnant with me.

I started at a young age. I think when I got really hooked though is when my elementary school teachers started pushing book fairs and scholastic order forms. Books were so available to me. I'd go to the library for my next hit. They were always well-stocked. It got to the point where I would read for any reason. I read when I was bored, I read when I wanted a high, I read when I needed a good cry.

Now I'm off the easy readers and go straight for the good stuff--novels!
I didn't think I'd be peddling it myself though. Now I have a list of regulars that I send all my best stuff to. And most of them come back for more.

Now my daughter is hooked. It's an endless spiral.
