Booking through Thursday

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.)

My mom shared my love of books. I'm not sure if that is one got me into reading, I think you either love it or don't. My kids see me read ALL the time & my oldest has no interest in it. I have bought tons of different types of books for her over the years & nothing I do makes her interested. Anyway, my mom is an avid reader & even my brother reads quite a bit. We usually don't share the same interests. My mom interested me to Terry Brooks series about the Magic Kingdom (Magic Kingdom for Sale--Sold! (Magic Kingdom of Landover)) which is my all time favorite series. She also introduced me to Douglas Adams (The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) who I love!

Fun question, to see more answers, check out Booking through Thursday.

While I do believe my parents influenced my becoming a reader, I am sure there were other things that played a part in it too (like personality).

My husband and I do not always share the same taste in books--but it's usually him that doesn't like something I'm reading whereas I usually like everything he reads. It's funny how that works out. :-)
