[With Valentine’s Day just over, it’s natural that I think about love and my ultimate Valentine – books!
I am always grateful to my parents who gave me a love of books at an early age. While we didn’t have money for luxuries, books were never considered a luxury in our home. My parents bought us all the Enid Blyton series and any gift money we received from our uncles and aunts would go to buy more books.
My mother started reading to me when I was really young and I was so book crazy that I could pretend-read at 3 years of age. I would actually tell the story word for word and knew when to turn the page too. Mom fooled a visiting uncle about how smart I was to be reading at that age.
Today I’m so happy to be guest posting on the lovely Mary Hill’s blog – Mary-andering Creatively – and to be co-hosting the Literary Musings Monday blog hop. I’m sharing how I fell in love with books and also a most useful book for parents – Book Love: Help Your Child Grow from Reluctant to Enthusiastic Reader.

To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life.” – ― W. Somerset Maugham
