So many of my classmates think I’m a bit weird, because I’m always reading, because I love to read. They think it’s a waste of time. They also think I’m a total nerd because I get good grades and because I love to learn. I wonder if they’ll still think the same think in just over a year when they’ve failed their GCSEs and I’m starting my A-Levels?

I just love reading. I love curling up on my window seat, in the sun, with music playing and a good book. Usually Harry the cat sprawled out next to me

My mum loved to read, and so does Jade Rachel, and they gave their love of reading to me. They always read to me when I was little and I was reading by the time I was 4 or so. It was love at first read, or something like that.
I love all the places a book can transport you to, all the different worlds you can explore, all the different lives you can live. You can be anyone – a heroine, a damsel in distress, a warrior, an elf, a witch, a vampire, a werewolf. You can be in the past, the present, the future, London, Paris, New York, outer space, under water.
It’s an escape – I had a horrible few years when my mum died and I was really unhappy. Reading gave me something to do and I started reading the books that she loved and it made me feel close to her.

What’s the old saying? Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book

I can't stop reading for pleasure even when I have piles of things I need to read for work and my classes. It is a sickness!

Why are they in school if they don’t love to learn/want to learn? And why waste money to not get good grades? People like that make no sense to me. When I was going to school there was always one or two people in the class like this and they would act like people were weird for wanting to excel … it’s weirder to pay for education and NOT want to excel.

Reading = best thing ever (:

I love all the places a book can transport you to, all the different worlds you can explore, all the different lives you can live. This! Exactly. Books are the escape from reality that we just need sometimes, and some people don’t get it.
