“Reading became a lifelong passion for me and fueled my desire to work in public library."
Welcome to our series “The Readers’ Diary”, we’re asking readers why they read and what does reading mean to them.
As readers increasingly share what they’re currently reading and plan to read on social media, we wanted to share more about the people behind each post.
My grandma taught me how to read before kindergarten because she saw me picking up books and making up my own stories. She went out and purchased Hooked On Phonics and I became obsessed with completing the work and getting little stickers. It became very personal to me and I wish I could tell her what it means to me today.
