I’m going to be honest; I’m going to be the odd one out here.
As a child I hated reading. Being diagnosed with ADHD while going to school in French meant I couldn’t read in English until I was 12. I was a “Hooked on Phonics” kid and honestly, I think that was one of the best decisions my dad ever made.
That was when I was introduced to The Babysitter’s Club and Archie comics. My love for reading grew with the introduction of Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until I met Artemis nearly 20 years ago that it flourished. My current tastes are kind of all over the place, my favourites being Harry Potter and Percy Jackson. Most of what I read can be classified as “kid’s books” and need to be fast paced; if I’m not hooked within the first few sentences, I quickly lose interest in the book. I also don’t like when too many things are happening at once, I can’t always keep up.
I’m hoping I can help prove that anyone can enjoy reading, given they find the right stuff!
You can call me Apollo and I’m pleased to meet you!
