Things I Love - Reading

Things I love....................

This is my feature where I get to share something that I just love. Since you are my friends, I like sharing things I love with others. It could be anything from a new product, food, recipe, song, image, to a person and everything in between. This will be something I am completely doing on my own, without pressure or compensation from a company, author, PR/Marketing firm, friend, business owner, etc. This will just be something that makes me happy and I want to share it with you. Enjoy some love!

Today's love is..................................Reading!

I LOVE to read.  I have books all over our bedroom.  On my nightstand, on the chair, on the floor, and on the bookshelf.  I have so many books that I want to read, yet can't always find the time to do it.

As a young child, my sisters were already married and out of the house since they are 14 years older than me.  I felt like an only child.  So, since I didn't always have someone to play with, one of my great loves was reading.  I remember a photo of me in a child rocker with a book "reading" as young as two.  We took lots of "Sunday Drives" and I always had a book with me.  Even now, when we go for a drive, I always bring a book, stealing every spare moment to sneak in some reading time.

I love getting lost in a book and finding ways to identify with the characters in the story.  I have tried to instill that love of reading in our children.  Two of our children were early readers, reading by the age of 4.  All our children enjoy reading, but aren't drawn to it as much as our 5 year old daughter is.  I can always find her with a book and that makes me so happy.  I look forward to sharing our love of reading together in the future!
