why you started reading

My friends usually ask me why I like reading so much, they think its boring and that they would rather watch the movie. I usally tell them its because "I dont get along with my mom at all and that she always grounds me when I dont do what she tells me to do and when Im grounded I have nothing better to do" Usually I just would have read a manga(Japanese comic book in case you dont know), but she would start taking those away too. My friend understood my first reason why I read so much, but he wanted another one so I told him what my math teacher told me "maybe you dont read is because you havent found a book that turns you on yet"(I know that sounds weird but yea...) his face turned red after that and i couldnt stop laughing, I even had to tell him that my math teacher said that quote not me. To tell the truth me and my mom usually got along before I started going to high school, I dont know if it was me who changed or it was her(i think its her cause she drinks and smokes way to much). So before high school I never really liked reading, until I had to do 5 book reports in one quarter so I went to barnes and nobles and saw a book by Lara Adrian. The book was called Kiss of Crimson and I finished the book in one day and the rest of her series in the next week. For me I have a lot of reasons for why I started to read, what are some of yours?
