Who taught you to read?
I actually don’t remember learning to read. This is more a function of my incredible ability to forget things than being some sort of reading prodigy. As far as my memory goes, I’ve always been able to read and write, so it freaks me out when I hang out with small children who can talk to me more or less articulately for their age group, but can’t read or write. However, it was, most likely, a combined effort of my mother and my brother. My mother read to me as a child, and my only memory of being taught to read is my brother trying to make me read one line in a biography of Abraham Lincoln, but I misunderstand where he’s pointing and read the line ahead.
