do not really know what kind of reader I am. As in other aspects of
life I do not like labels so the best thing to do is to tell you some
reflections about reading and about me.
think I started reading when listening to my grandparents´ stories.
I always enjoyed being told tales, stories or whatever as far as I am
more a listener than a teller.
tales came to me at school and I specially remember the times I spent
reading and leafing through a huge Little Red Riding Hood tale in the
library corner. I can still feel the paper sliding from my fingers
and those lovely pictures...she was almost as big as me at that time.
I grew up I began reading Enyd Blyton, the “Famous Five” and
naughty Guillermo in search of adventures. I also read comic books:
Mortadelo and Filemón; Rúa del Percebe.
sometimes I read for fun, sometimes because I need it for my job;
sometimes because I need information about a place, a gardening
technique or to extend knowledge about something new I learned and
became really interested in.
is important where I read; I cannot do it everywhere or even
travelling (I get dizzy) …imagine if I lived in a big city with
the enormous amount of time they waste on
transport My favourite moment for reading
is my room in a winter morning with the sun filtering through the
window panes and after having had breakfast….delightful! In a rainy
day it is not so good but it is worth it too.
read very different kind of books: illustrated tales (I love them);
novels (I suppose being a different
one from myself and learning about human
behaviour, feelings…I find it quite an interesting work of
empathy); essays about the human condition; books about nature,
gardening….a little bit of this and little bit of that.
have to say that right now I prefer paper books rather than e-books
but in some years time…who knows?
I read a lot and sometimes right the opposite. I guess depending on
