I have read all my life and the passion never wanes. I was going to the library which was just down the street from where I lived, all my life except when I grew up and discovered book stores and that I could actually keep the books I loved. You have no idea what that did to me!! I actually worked for an Atlanta based publisher for several years and WOW was that awesome! I wish I was right back there now! Fortunately several of my children read so going to the bookstore was no problem as a past time for us!
