I love to read. Unfortunately, I am the only one in my family who does. But I do sense excitement in my children when they receive new books. So they are my reading partners lol. They love their bed time stories.

That's okay too BookBeauty, that may blossom into a love for reading, but if not that's okay too.

I got my love of reading from my mother. I remember all the evenings we would sit side by side and read our books. Even though we barely talked those nights (because we were reading) they were wonderful bonding times that I will never forget.

@Christinar81 those are beautiful memories. My cousin and I used to do that as well, she did anyway and then I joined her and there grew my love of reading. I wasn't gonna let her read longer than me so it was always like a challenge to us ha ha. :)

My mom used to read to us every night when we were little, thats part of what started me into being such a book junkie. She would read us Little house on the prairie and I loved it.

Reading was never something that happened a lot for me growing up, my mother read and encouraged me to read but I never remember reading together and I certainly did not enjoy it. Now that I am older and a teacher, and have children of my own. I have found so much joy in reading, but especially when i read to my son. I can not wait until he is old enough to read chapter books at night with me! I want to give him a love for reading that I never had or understood as a child.

I remember growing up, my Mother would read the Little House on the Prairies series to us.
Trying to find the old hard covered books is a hard thing these days - hoping to read these to my kids.
Oh memories . . . :)

My family is full of readers. My dad and brother are more into reading magazines and blogs about their favorite topics, while my mom and grandma prefer romance novels. I tend to pick up and read anything that catches my attention. Both of my sons love to be read to, and I'm so excited to share those timeless childhood classics with them! My oldest son and I are currently reading 'Charlotte's Web'.

I often read to my cat, but sometimes it's like she doesn't understand a word I'm saying :roll:
