Once upon a time I was an avid reader, and a bookworm according to some people. If I had this many books to read, well frankly there probably wouldn't have been such a pile at the time because I did nothing but read. I would come home from school and read. I would make sure to stuff some sort of book in my backpack to read in my spare time. That was until I was introduced to a computer. Long ago, I had no such interest in computers. I knew of playing Nintendo games such as Donkey Kong and Zelda, among other games. But still no real fancy to them much. We also had a really old computer...I think it was an old Apple computer that we could play games on, but no internet and nothing like the times are now where the sky is our limit.
Books are becoming movies left and right now as well. What happened to just a simple book with words? Not to say that every movie out there based on a book is a bad thing--because it's not.
Currently, I'm reading "Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief. Yes, in order to watch the movie that's coming out on the 27th--and I heard that the movie was really good-- I most often wait to rent movies so I don't have to go to some crowded theater and wish I was eating popcorn and candy. Instead I read the book first and wait for it to come out. Then I rent it, sit in the comfort of my own home and then decide whether I want to add the movie to the ever growing collection of DVDs.
