What Book Made You Into a Reader?


Lovely Shayla from@disappearfromreality challenges me to write a post about What Book Made Me Into a Reader. So here I am, writing about it. 

I don’t have to think about it not even a second. It’s ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ by Stieg Larsson. I read many books before this, but none of them made me feel like this book did. I remember that I was in high school, I was 16 years-old (if I remember right).

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
