I love reading books. I like to tune into another world, where there are millions of words written on the walls. I like to extend my vocabulary and sound like them well paid lawyers. I can channel into a book and play different roles, as the character. Books are like best friends to me.

I go to a good book when I’m gloomy, upset, or even depressed. I like to read drama novels. They get me on the edge of my seat. They cause my nails to be spread all over the floor with globs of spit on them; from me biting fiercely. I was so drawn to the intense moments.

I started reading books at a young age. I was a very intelligent young boy. I read newspapers like my dad, and hair magazines like my ma. Wanting to be a grown up so bad, I was actually getting smarter. Smarter and smarter I got.
