I am somewhere between young and old. I have loved reading ever since the day, at the age of 7, I picked up Peter Pan and discovered it was a very good story. Prior to that I was only given boring books to read as I was considered to be in need of "remedial" reading measures. My subsequent leap through the reading levels has led me to the view that the best way to improve children's reading is to give them enjoyable books!
I still love children's books, as it happens. I read more widely but the majority of my books are considered young adult. I am older than that, and indeed my own children will soon be young adult themselves.
I am an Amazon top 500 reviewer, currently hovering between 250 and 300. I have linked my librarything profile where I completed my 250 books in a year challenge 2 years running. Reading young adult novels allows me to get through a LOT of books - although I did read much longer works in that time too, including the Bible and War and Peace!
