I remember when I was eleven and I never bookmarked a book, because it would be done in an hour or in a day. Depending solely on the thickness of the book. I would take it everywhere until I was done. I read while walking, eating, talking, bathing, and unfortunately using the bathroom.
My poor mother couldn't keep up with me, and even when she brought home 500-600 page books I would consume them in a day and beg for more. I read every book in the house, I read my dad's books before he even had a chance to read them. I was addicted to books, and this lead into me writing books. It is an incurable disease, once it has you there is no going back.
Here I am twenty years old, and I still have the same disease. I just don't have the freedom to let it control me anymore. I now have responsibilities, distractions, and a sudden need for sleep. Things have changed, I love reading and I am still a fast reader, but I now find new things keeping me from my books.
Television was something that I rarely watched as a kid at least not at the extent I do now. I didn't know it then, but I would unknowingly join a lot of Fandom's in the coming years.
The Internet, I don't even need to explain this one, I'm sure you guys all know.
Time, time is a luxury and I never seem to have it, or use it right.
Anyway, the point of all this is that I may have been neglecting my books a bit. Don't get me wrong not a day goes by when I don't read, but I haven't read with the energy I used to have and that has resulted in this.
The worst thing about it, is that I keep buying more. I found myself in 'Chapters' today and I bought.
Dorthy Must Die- Danielle Paige ( Cait is to blame for this :D)
Neverwhere- Neil Gaiman (It is set in London)
Islands of Chaldea- Diana Wynne Jones (Her last book that she wrote *cries*)
It is 'The Never Ending Story of Skye's Book Obsession'
I think I should seek professional help.
