If I could earn a living doing what I love it would be reading and getting individuals more interested in reading. Teenagers today no longer going shopping for a good book whether it is an e-book or a paperback book and you never hear teens talking about the books they have read just for the pleasure of reading. It is strange to hear how few kids take an interest in reading outside of the schoolroom when i could not imagine not having a good book to end my day with. That is the reason why I have spent the last two summers working at a summer camp that focused on getting children more interested in reading. In order to get more kids reading I would go around to elementary schools and work with 2nd and 3rd graders by reading and doing creative activities related to the books with small groups of children. I would want to work with 2nd and 3rd grader because it is important to get children interested in reading at a young age since older kids are more likely to be set in their ways when it comes to reading.This would change the world because there are places in the world were knowing how to read is basically non-existant and by making the world more literate we increase our chances of a better future for all.
