Why I love to read

Story by Katya. Native language Ukrainian. 




Only humans read. It is what sets us apart from all other living things. Just look at the face of someone reading. It’s like nothing else. 

I WOULD rather imagine the world in a book than to watch a film. Before I went to sleep at night my father and mother always read me little stories. I loved that time. In school I started to read books for myself. I like to buy books because I don’t like to part with them! I don’t like to even loan them [give them to someone for a short time] because they are so valuable to me. I love to underline them and write my thoughts in them. Later on I go back and read what I wrote in them. 

     It’s hard to pick one book, but I think the Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde is my favorite book. It’s a very great story. There are a lot of right thoughts in the book. Every really good book must teach you about life I think.
