Even though I don't have a job in a library yet, I still get to do all of the fiction ordering at my school. It's like a shopping spree for books and someone else pays for it! : )
I am 43 years old and I've been teaching teenagers for 20 years. I have 2 daughters, a husband, a dog and a cat. They all put up with my reading habits like pros!
I used to be an avid reader as a child. In fact, I read so much that my mom would take away my books and make me go outside to play! As I got older, I stopped reading so much. I mean, I read some stuff, but I wasn't a prolific reader. Then, my students introduced me to Twilight, and everything changed!
I owe Twilight for my re-discovered love of reading and even for my decision to become a librarian. The English teachers are right. See, a book really can change your life!
