My abuela would ask me:
“Why do you read more than uno libro at a time?”
I always say:
“Because I like reading many places
And learning many new things.”
I would read about tres libros a month.
A thirst for knowledge I had
As I would gobble each libro in sight
Reading palabra after palabra
Seeing, imaging what was happening
Not putting el libro down until a chapter ended;
Then picking up the next libro
For another fascinating chapter.
Libros will always be part of my life
All got started when given mystery series to read.
