Personally, I feel that I am a strong reader and that I have been that way ever since I learned to read. While I was learning to read (at around 4 or 5) I originally hated it. However, since I was around 7 years old, I have loved reading and I read voraciously.
When reading textbooks and other reference materials, I generally like to summarize key pieces of information in my own words in order to understand it better. I also like to make predictions while I'm reading literature and observe if my predictions were correct.
All in all, I feel that I am a very confident and proficient reader that uses many strategies in order to understand and enjoy the text.
