Were you a born bookworm or somebody got you into the habit of reading?
I can remember my mom or older sisters reading to me as far back as 3 yrs. old. The first book I remember is my mom reading Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman. I loved that book and have never forgotten about it. In fact, I’ve talked about my love of this book so much over the years that my son & husband found a copy of the book which had the stuffed dog to go with it for sale on Amazon and bought them for me as part of a birthday present one year. I was thrilled…it was one of the best gifts I’ve ever gotten, and I still have them on display.
My dad was also a reader. He could be found with a book in his hand every day. He loved westerns, especially by author Louis L’Amour.
So, I guess I was born a reader, it was definitely in my genes. My children loved to read when they were kids, but now they’ve gone on to other hobbies. My youngest granddaughter loves to read though, and my oldest has started reading again, which makes me very happy.
