I was influenced a lot by my second grade teacher. I was in a class that was below my level so I always had a lot of free time and my teacher's idea was to have me read. There was a program at my school where if you could prove that you had read a certain number of books, then you could win prizes. I remember spending all my free time with my teacher trying to find a book that I hadn't read, so that I could win the grand prize. I did win the prize and ever since, I have loved to read.

I'm not entered (I have the book so I don't need to be, lol) but my mom, honestly. She always read to me, and I sorta learned to read at three, so I don't really remember NOT reading.

I'm probably not the third one enterting, but let's see....

My parents had some books in my house like the Rainbow Fish and I read things on my own once I did learn how. I think school helped the most by reading in class and we went to the library every week at school so I was always reading a new book and very different types of books. I got into blogging in high school, and by that time, I'd started shooting stars for music and added books and other entertainment when i found out about strictly book blogs...and i loved to read. I still do!!!

I had always loved books and reading. But when we moved overseas when I was 7 it was harder to source books and there really weren't libraries to visit. I had an uncle who took me under his wing, would recommend, lend, and discuss books with me. He helped direct and broaden my tastes - was a great influence on me.

Okay well, I always loved reading ever since I was little, i would read like r.l. stine books...but I stopped as I grew up, and actually my friend Jessica introduced me back into reading again since she's a bookaholic, and it just stuck with me and now I'm obsessed lol so gotta thank my friend for influencing me to read :)
