Unfortunately, not one family member reads. However, my Mom takes full responsibility for me always having a book in hand. As she tells it, she would give me a book when trying to “potty train” me or when I was in my “playpen” in front of the TV (this was in the 50s when these upbringing rituals were not taboo. As for my sons, I don’t know where I went wrong. I would read to them EVERY night and many times during the day. We would take walks to the library, had them signed-up for “library school” classes before they went to Kindergarten and anytime we were at a mall, we HAD to stop in the book store and we all got to pick out a book. When they were younger, they had a few sets of series (can’t remember the title) that they HAD to read, which they did, until they entered HS and reading for enjoyment stopped. That is why when I found this community of book blogging I was so excited that I found people that loved books as much as me and that I finally could discuss books that I had read and see what other’s thought on the same book.
First I would like to thank Amy for hosting this month and doing such a wonderful job. Thank you Amy!!
