Words have always fascinated me ever since. As far as I can remember I have always been reading, all kinds of literature. Except for very technical ones, I enjoy printed words. Thus, as early as Grade school I was already into pocketbooks. I started my affair with books when I would read Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mystery stories.

In high school books of Danielle Steele, Robert Ludlum, Mills and Boon romances attracted my fancy for reading. As I grew older poetry never escaped my reading repertoire. Poets like Robert Frost, e. e. cummings and Elizabeth Barrett Brownings have been part of my reading conquest. I even studied the lives of Emily Dickinson and Sara Teasdale.

Of the contemporary writers, Erma Bombeck who said: "A friend doesn't go on a diet because you are fat"; and Robert Fulghum are among my favorites. I love their wit and logical analogies. This line of Fulghum always keeps me on my toes as a parent: "Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you. "

For me, nothing compares to the feeling of putting down a book which I have read from cover to cover.
