Children and books
I have loved to read for as long as I can remember. I remember being excited to go to the library after school in Junior High and my friends thinking that was weird. My dad was an avid reader and I was always scouring his shelves for something to read-that's where my love of Science Fiction and Fantasy came from-I do enjoy Isaac Asimov!!!
The Star had an article (Children who grow up with books fare better) today on how having books at home impacts children around the world. Not a new idea but interesting nevertheless.
Did you love to read growing up or was it something you developed an appreciation for as an adult?
