how reading books can take you everywhere
the joy and adventure of reading...
how to achieve it....when you read a fiction book, put yourself in the main character of the book and picture yourself in every places that the book describes. take in every scenery and ambience.
I started reading novels when I was 9 years old and from then on I couldn't stop. Reading is the most beneficial past time for me.
I can still remember the very first book I've read, it was from Sweet Dreams books entitled "Dance of Love". The moment I started it I couldn't put it down and at that time I didn't have any idea how reading can be so addictive.
Then, from a teenage novels I switched to thriller and crime novels and then I got hooked again. This time by Sidney Sheldon's books. I have a complete collection of all his books and I love every one of them. Each book I've read more than once.
After I've finished all of the Great Sidney Sheldon's book, I've found a book by Iris Johansen entitled "Ugly Duckling", it was so mind boggling and from then on I started collecting her books as well...and then it goes from one author to another and so on and so forth...
To me, there's nothing more rewarding leisure than reading.
I have some other authors whose novels I find very interesting. Hope you'll like their books as well as much as I did.
