fun fact. when i was younger i struggled with reading. i had a hard time keeping up with kids and school and the shit they gave me to read didn’t appeal to me.
then one day my grandma had me read Harry Potter and the sorcerers Stone. mind you i didn’t like it at first. then when that shit with the troll and the dungeon happened something just fucking clicked.
so i finished the book and had my mom take me to borders. i looked at all the books in the sci-fi and the fantasy section. i lost my shit that day. i didn’t have trouble reading cause i was dumb. i had trouble cause i was reading shit that didn’t interest me.
so i started read shit from the forgotten realms and wizards of the coast. which is probably why i still like stuff involving elves and orcs and lotr shit. and from there i started getting into the stuff i thought was boring. next thing you know im reading like 5 books a year. don’t know if thats a lot or not but hey i like to read now.
all cause of a troll in a dungeon getting beat up by some kids.
I just want to get a ton of three ring binders, print every awesome fanfic I read, fill up the binders with the fics, draw cover art for the stories and put it in the front slip of the binder, and put them all on a nice big shelf.
That is my reading material.
Started reading a book this morning when I couldn’t sleep (it was a suggestion by someone who said it would help me get more tired) and suprisingly, due to my lack of concentration, I’ve actually got quite into it -I’ve forgotten how nice it is to escape from reality for a while :) Used to love reading as a kid until my concentration/issues/brain got in the way.
