Do your children, siblings, or other family members enjoy reading as much as you do?
Nope! Not at ALL. Growing up, family would always get upset with me for reading. They considered it antisocial because I would choose to read instead of sit with them and watch tv every single night. I have never seen my mother pick up a book, though she does read the tabloid newspaper daily. Middle brother never liked books, youngest brother used to like them when he was a kid. He LOVED the Percy Jackson series and named our cat Perseus. Doesn’t do too much reach now that he’s grown up.
I am hoping, however, to instill my love of reading onto my niece. I gifted her a kindle and stocked it with books. Whenever she comes to see me, she’s extremely excited to tell me what new book she just finished, though she’s only turning 9. I cannot wait until she gets a little older so we can start reading and chatting about other books together.
How about you? Do you come from a family of voracious readers? Or are you a lone bookworm such as myself?
