I've loved books ever since I taught myself to read at age 3 or so. I managed to get myself expelled from the second grade in for insisting on reading Treasure Island when I was supposed to be fingerpainting with the rest of the class. And biting the teacher on the finger when she tried to take it away from me.

That sealed it ... I became convinced that there was good, powerful stuff in books. And have never had occasion to change my mind.

I'm trying Bookcrossing out to help clean out my book shelves. I've never been one to hang on to books as decorative accessories or props for variously configured "reading shrines." Reading for me is a contact sport and books always been something to READ and pass along to others similarly afflicted.
