I learned to read before 1st grade with the help of my grandmother. I could read fairly well in kindergarten when the other kids were eating paste and crayons.

I hated kindergarten, I just didn't like that sort of commotion and still don't do.

Same here as first posters.

At age 4, at the summer cabin.
Mom's glossy magazines were good study material.

So many words I didn't understand chuckle.gif
Took me years to decipher the ones not even my big
Sis wanted to explain to me 37.gif

Two days - or was it hours? Minutes? - in 1st grade
at age 6 made it clear to me that there was
something diffusely, but very, wrong with the human

...which the television soon proved true, by having
the Vietnam War rage on in our living room throughout
my childhood.

I'll just never forget, how I sat on the fluffy white shepherd's
rug in front of the telly, mouth open, eyes staring in absolute,
raw horror...at this:


and what shortly followed.

I tried hard for weeks, but I could not unsee it.

What year was that?

Stoner, if you think that was bad, I remember seeing Jack Ruby plug Oswald in '63, on LIVE TV.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.

I have no idea when I learned to read. Didn't go to kindergarten though, In Alberta early 70s only rich kids attended kindergarten. I did teach my older sister to tell time though, when she was 10 and I was six. I wonder how many kids today can tell time?

i learned to read when i was about one and a half or two years old.
the first real book i've read was jurassic park by michael crichton when i was about 2 or 3 years old. great book although i didn't understand much about genetics back then. lol.gif

i don't remember how i learned it. it just happened. my mother used to read stuff to me a lot (poems and stuff) while i looked at what she was reading. at some point i baffled her when i started reading my favorite poem. she first thought that i memorized it but then found out that i'm able to read.^^

started talking with about half a year. unfortunately she's dead so i'm no longer able to ask her how it all started exactly. :/ my dad lived in another country.^^ socialism.^^

My mother told me I was reading fairly fluently around 4 or 5 years old...

But I know my soul is very old I can feel its ancient age...

So i'm sure I learned to read many lifetimes ago...
