I Am A Reader Tag

-Choose 1 word that describes being a reader. Discerning
-What’s the very first book you fell in love with? the Bible (I do not know if there was any book I read before I became a Christian that I fell in love with. I became a Christian when I was 18 years old. I read books when I was youngster but do not recall any one book that stands out in my memory. What influenced as a young teenager was music not books. I was also effected by watching television and movies.
-Hardcover or paperback? I will read any book, hardcover or paperback as long it is readable/not torn or underlined.
-How has reading shaped your identity? Reading has changed how I see and experience the world/reading books as made me a dreamer/a Christian misfit.
-What book do you read when you need to be comforted?I read 'The Works of St. John of the Cross' especially his treatise 'Dark Night'.
-Who taught you to be a reader? (Or did you do it all on your own?) I was taught to read when I was in Jr. High School around 1966? 1967?
-Describe your dream reading lounge. A big house filled with thousands and thousands books and comfortable chairs with windows that let in plenty of sunlight.
-What book changed the way you act or see the world? I would have to day the Bible. But also I would have to answer this question by first stating taking LSD Lysergic acid diethylamide changed my view of the world and then afterwards the Bible.
