Learning to read and write was not particularly hard, but it still took a long time before I was proficient doing it. To 6-year-old-me, reading and writing was just a thing grown-ups forced me to do to keep me away from my toys and the TV. I did not have any interest in doing it because it felt like a chore.

At times when I read there are words that I don’t quite understand. When this happens I look up the word and see how I could use it. This also goes back to my writing, if I find a word in a book that I have read I can add it to my writing to improve my writing skills.

Being a quiet and a good listener, reading has always been on the top of the list of my hobbies. Additionally, I am a person who loves to know and appreciate historical art works, lifestyles, and literature works. Thus, getting a chance to read American literature was a wish being fulfilled for me. Amongst all the passages and literary pieces I have read so far in this book, I had trouble in grasping the facts stated in “A Report of the Newfound Land of Virginia” by Thomas Hariot.

My middle school had the best YA section I read so many books I cannot remember so I just chose ones that I remembered and
I learned things such as the fact that I had to write better conclusions and use a better choice of diction. But it also taught me that I have always been one of the better writers in my class. This experience made me change the way I think about reading and writing because it made me realize certain aspects of my writing that need to get better.
