Reading Habits:
It all started with Goodnight Moon when I was 3. I don’t think I’ve stopped reading since. I read any spare moment I have. When I don’t have any spare time, I avoid all responsibilities and continue reading. Audiobooks have allowed me to increase the number of books I read. I was finally able to stop reading in the car at red lights! As a natural introvert, I crave the escape that books provide.
