Little Known Facts… October 5, 2013… I Sneak Reading

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 ???
