I belong to a family where everyone loves to read. My journey of reading began with the Malory Towers series by Enid Blyton when I was 10 years old. After that began my love affair with books. I read the classic books like A Christmas Carol, Adventures of Tom Sawyer to mystery books like Nancy drew and Agatha Christie. But when I was in the tenth standard as studies became a priority. Although I loved to read but I got very busy with my studies and after that hardly read 3-4 books in a year. When I was in college I enjoyed reading books by Sidney Sheldon, Danielle Steel, Harlan Coben and Nora Roberts. But still I wasn’t able to give time to reading as much I would love to give. Once I got married and my son was born, reading took a complete back seat. That was the time when I couldn’t go out much and I wanted to something for myself. When my son was about 4 months old, I started reading again. I used to look forward to reading when he slept. I took a membership in our local library. Chennai has excellent libraries. They have a huge variety of books, from the latest books to classics.
From the last four years, I have revived my hobby again. The most common question which my friends ask me is when do I get time to read. I tell everyone that if you love something, you will definitely take out 30 minutes for it. Either I wake up early before everyone wakes up in my family. I enjoy my alone time with my book and a cup of coffee or before going to bed, I read a few pages of a book.
