I LOVE READING BUT NOT A WORM

I have all my life been had some sort of  book-worm with a deep fascination of words sd if they had a distinct hold on me which could not let go with an unearthly grip!

my mum  loves to tell the tale of when meeting a friend in liverpool she left me reading a book and came back hrs later to find i had not moved and was still totally enthralled in what i was reading!

This love affair continued with  me reading well before starting school and basically  this was when I was at my happiest,as I could be lost in my world of books  and did not have to worry about social contact as I made friends through my reading  of words and what more could I possibly want!!

I must admit  I struggled through my school years , not quite fitting in always an outsider  never the popular one that everyone rushes to like a roaring fire and although I loved my company I realised something was wrong  and after quite a lot of upheavals diagnosed with Aspergers .at least this explained my obsessions with books and difficulties with people.

I still enjoy reading today but mainly do it through a shared reading scheme brought about by the reader organisation where we read the books together so can discuss the sadness happiness and all in between which affects all our lives
