Hi, my name is <insert name here> and I’m a read-a-holic.
I love to read. I don’t ‘get’ to read nearly as much as I would like to, because I end up feeling like I should be doing something else. Sometimes I have help feeling like I should be doing something else. Everyone else seems to need to have so many pieces of me.
I have the Nook reader app on my phone and on my ipad. I have the Kindle app on my phone and on my ipad. I get questioned so many times because I get caught reading.
It hurts a lot to understand that I’m getting CAUGHT doing something that is so horrible, reading books.
I know, when I was a kid, no one understood why I loved to read, but no one ever gave me grief for reading. My habit was nurtured and fed. I had boxes and boxes of books. Not always the kind of books that I loved to read, but it was reading material so I consumed it. I fed my habit.
Now, so many times I feel like I’m going through withdrawals. I hide and read a page, a paragraph, a sentence. When I get caught and someone thinks that something else matters more, I cave. But I can’t seem to stop coming back to get my fix.
Anyone else a closet reader? Want to join my anit-read-a-holics anonymous ???
