Why did you start reading?
I had a very awkward time at school, we know now that I like my children have High Functioning Autism.
I don’t handle social situations well, and never had, I am just as happy if not more so on my own than with a group of friends. In primary school I never understood social etiquette or cues. so I was often an outcast or bullied. I remember most days though primary school and into high school I use to hide in the library from people to read. Reading was my escape, books were my friends, I never had to pretend with a book, they were always there for me.
I still use reading as an escape when life gets hard or stressful but mostly it is just my routine now, after dinner to soak in a nice hot bubble bath and read for half an hour. It is my time and gives me a chance to center myself.
Why did you start reading? Do you remember your first book?
