I Am

I am a shy girl who loves to read.
I wonder how many books there are in the world.
I hear the characters speaking.
I see the story playing out in my head.
I want as many books as I can get my hands on.
I am a shy girl who loves to read

I pretend I am the main characters.
I feel the emotions of the characters.
I touch the soft pages.
I worry that I won't have enough time to read.
I cry when something sad happens in a book.
I am a shy girl who loves to read.

I understand how the characters feel.
I say my favorite lines from my favorite books.
I dream that I am in the story.
I try to see each scene and character.
I hope that the story will never end.
I am a shy girl who loves to read.
