For Bookworms Only

What would you have done with the time you've spent reading had you never developed a passion for the written word?

For some time I've been trying to come up with a single downside for my lifelong love affair with books. The best I can do? Maybe I'd have paid more attention to some moments. That's it. For me, there is no other drawback. How about for you?

What was the book that convinced you that a lifetime of burying your nose into pages of words was an undeniably effective use of time? God, I really want to hear from a bunch of bookworms on this one. Make my day, will you?

  1. Pat, I can't give you a book. What I can tell you that from the age of 10 or 11, I always had my nose in a book. The highlight of my week was when my Dad took me and my sister to the library on Saturdays. My Christmas wish lists always included books I would like to own. I had a decline in the amount of reading during my working years, but never my passion. Now that I am retired, I am blissfully reading at least two books a week! To me that is time well spent. Otherwise, why would I do it, ha, ha????

    1. Ines; From one bookworm to another - thanks for responding. I caught the bug at a young age as well but I have a distinct memory of the first - Jules Verne - "Around the World in 80 Days". I've never been without a book close by ever since.
