When I was six , I was carrying home 20 books from the local library each week ,
from fiction to science , including huge volumes on Gods and Goddesses from
around the world...I read from the light under the door until I got whipped
with the belt , yet I kept reading...
I remember reading Twenty One Balloons , and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas ,
when I was seven years old , along with many , many other books , magazines , etc...
By eight , I went through three sets of encyclopedias , as well science journals ,
yet , as well , read all Nancy Drew , Hardy Boys , and other children type series...
Of course Dr. Seuss !
I won awards , but my goal was to learn as much as the universe had to offer...
Through Scholastic Magazine , which my parents got me , I gained the right to
ask three questions , so I asked Ray Bradbury about a "red shift" , and as well ,
asked about Albert Hoffman , and the discovery of LSD , ( when I was eight ) ,
and I can not remember the third question , but it was another deep question )
I am still continuing on the path of information upload , though more care
is taken with my choices at my present age...there are books , and books...
And our adventures move on !
