This is for Bruce. The way that I see it, the more you read, the better you will become at reading. The key is finding books that interest you. I would go to the local library, get a library card, and tell them you are an old dog learning new tricks, that you need help finding your way in the library. They have changed a lot since we were kids! Then, if you are embarrassed, say you are getting books for your grandchild that is whatever age level of reader that you are. Ask directions to get to that area, then start looking around at the different books and get as many as you are allowed to take home, then start reading, and the ones that you can't put down, go back and get more of them! Just keep on reading, no matter how slowly, you will begin to improve. That is how it starts when you are a child, you may take longer, but it will happen. Good luck!
