I always had an auditory memory so it was always easy to remember things i had heard.
When i was little i had a favourite book that my mom was forced to read to me everyday. After a while i knew the story by heart and knew when to flip through the pages.
That was when my parents decided to make a little show for their friends. They sat me with the book and i was "reading" switching pages in the right moment. My parents friends were amazed that i can read in the age of 3 ;)
