When growing up did your family share your love of books? If so, did one person get you into reading? And, do you have any family-oriented memories with books and reading? (Family trips to bookstore, reading the same book as a sibling or parent, etc.) When I was a child, reading books was the way to go for enjoyment. I had no real influence as I just loved to read and at Christmas and my birthdays my aunts would always give me books. First and foremost was and is The Bible.
I grew up with all the great classics like Dickens, Cristie, Austin, Tolkein, Lewis, Verne, etc.. and I still enjoy reading them today. My father used to love anything science fiction and I remember sneaking his books at night and reading them in my room after everyone was sleeping.
Yesterday my sister and brother-in-law and me of course, spent part of the day at Barnes & Noble where we enjoyed coffee, fellowship and reading. I picked up a Mary Higgins Clark book titled, "Death Wears a Beauty Mask and Other Stories". She is my favorite modern day mystery writer. I skimmed through it and liked what I did read. I have it on order from Amazon® When I buy books I buy hard cover. That to me feels like reading. Do you read? What is your favorite book or books? Let me know what books you like to read if you do.
Well my friends, until the next time have a day of blessings.
