“Autobiography: My reading life”
My earliest memory of reading was probably when I was in 1st grade. It was so nice because I didn’t have to have people read to me all the time. People still read to me but I have some freedom that I could read to myself and by myself. In 1st grade, the first book I read was a book called Charlotte’s Web. It was a good book.

Before I started to read I looked at all my friends and family that read like all the time and said to myself that I could never do it because it would take up all of my time and it would be hard for me because I used to get distracted like all the time whenever I was supposed to do something, not as much now.
One reason why I read is because reading improves my vocabulary. Reading improves my vocabulary because if I find a word in a book that I don’t know I want to look up the meaning of the word. Well sometimes. This way I know what the meaning of the word is. Another reason I read is because it shows me
