I have loved to read for as long as I have known how. Therefore, reading is extremely
important to me and is a huge part of who I am. Being on the Teen Board
made sense to me because it is full of people who have the same appreciation for books
and reading that I do. I am glad to have the opportunity to be of use to Teenreads and to
be a part of something that has been helpful in my never ending search for more books
to read.
