Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about early reading…
Do you remember how you developed a love for reading? Was it from a particular person, or person(s)? Do you remember any books that you read, or were read to you, as a young child? (question courtesy of Diane)
I developed a love for reading very early in life. When I was a kid, maybe 2 or 3, my mother, my sister and I would hang out on my mother’s bed and wait for my father to come home from work. That time was usually spent reading. My mother would usually be reading her romance novels, my sister doing a puzzle of some sort, and I would be reading whatever book series I was obsessed with at that time. Usually the Babysitter’s Club or Sweet Valley High. On other rare days, I would read an X-Men comic because I had an obsession with Wolverine. Still do but for different reasons. I credit my mother with my love for reading and for books. Without those afternoons, I don’t know if my love for reading would have ever developed to the level that it did. It is associated with comfort in my mind mainly because of all that time I got to spend with my mother when I was younger.
