As a young (ahem I mean younger
) girl I was an avid reader. I read pretty much all the Enid Blyton books, Famous Five, Secret Seven, Mallory Towers.... I was such an avid reader I used to take the kitchen kettle, coffee and milk to my room at night and read for hours on end.
I still enjoy reading but alas have less time for it. Recently finished a book on the Boston Strangler, that to be honest was painful to read but once started had to be finished. It was nearly as bad, but not quite, as reading Edwina Curries pages of drivel. I'm a huge fan of Cick Lit easy reading as much as I can get engrossed in the more serious.
I don't enjoy reading books more than once but love to pass them on and just could't throw one out, a mortal sin in my eyes.
What did you read as a child, if anything? Have you continued to read?
