Reading is fundamental

MSU News - November 12, 2014 - 2:12pm
"All fall. Fall of the wall." Thus began my love affair with reading. I'm not sure exactly how old I was, but I remember sitting in my room with Dr. Seuss's "Hop on Pop" in my lap and suddenly understanding what the words on the page meant. My parents and older sisters had been reading to me for years, but all of a sudden, I got it-I could read. I became a voracious reader. I tore through every Dr. Seuss book on the shelf. I wore out pages in Little Golden books. I read the back of cereal boxes while I ate breakfast and was soon reading well beyond my age. The Boxcar Children, Nancy Drew, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and Encyclopedia Brown became my close friends. Judy Blume guided me through adolescence. Louisa May Alcott and Laura Ingalls Wilder showed me what life in earlier times was like. In school I did extra book reports and rushed through assignments so I could read during free time. In the summer, I begged to go to the library as often as I asked to go swimming. Even going camping meant biking to the store to get comic books or a new novel.
