My mother piqued my interest in books as a child by reading bedtime stories to my siblings and me, but I didn't start reading books as a hobby until late in elementary school when I started having access to books about my interests at the time. I prefer my fiction to be in the form of an audio book with a skilled reader, but I like my non-fiction in codex form so I can focus on it at my own pace.
