Both summer leisure and school labour were always filled with invigorating thoughts and ideas found in books.
I clearly remember the first book I ever read all by myself.
I was in kindergarten.
I read and reread Go, Dog, Go to my mother with the same enthusiastic excitement of the very first time.
So often that I can still recite it by heart.
To this day, I carry this embedded zeal for learning through books.
Books became and continue to be for me an ever present life passion.
