CONFESSIONS OF A BOOKWORM “Open a book”

7 Nov

I have been a bookworm since I was 13 years old; I remember exactly the moment that my addiction began. On my 13th Birthday my father gave to me “Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban”.  That night, I began reading it and I felt myself electrified with HP world. That was the moment, that exact moment when I realized that there were books for children worth reading.

I began the series of Harry Potter for the third book. Weird. I know. I finished the first 3 books on summer vacation, since then, the anguish of waiting months and months for the next book to be released marked my existence.

Between HP books I began reading any book that cross my way, and I mean ANYTHING. From fantasy themed books like “The Lord of The Rings” by Tolkien to murder mysteries quite inappropriate for my age like “The Red Dragon” by Thomas Harris.

Not that I was completely oblivious to books before Harry Potter. When I was around 5 years old, my parents had an edition of “The Silence of the Lambs” by Thomas Harris in which the title page was the image of a young woman’s face with a bee in her mouth, but the bee had a skull as a head; I thought ” What can be inside this book for the main image to be this one; a bee with a skull head?” As you can imagine my child imagination went wild imagining assassin bees and young women being bitten by them. Since then every once in a while I entered my parents’ bedroom and I checked the titles pages of the books that they were reading, memorizing titles, authors and the images that accompany them.

As you can imagine, my book addiction has increased dramatically, from addiction to young-adult series to classic thick-unreadable books, my thirst is growing in a pace that somethimes i feel alarmed because i just want to read, read, read. Not eat, read. Not sleep, read. No breath, just read.

Any bookworm anywhere???

Love,

Lady C.
