Book Love #LMMLinkup

[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

  1. I loved reading this post. I share a similar story like yours when I was 3-31/2 years old. Somedays I wonder why Enid Blyton’s works and other similar works did not cross my path when I was a kid. And this is the reason I have started all over again with my son. I feel grateful that he loves books and is an enthusiastic reader. He has started reading simple stories on his own now and always insists on finishing the story till the end even if I ask him to stop after a few pages.

    1. How interesting, Anamika. I’d love to hear your story.
      I would love to read the Enid Blyton’s over again, if I could! It’s lovely what you are doing with your son.
      Please hop over to Mary’s blog and take a look at the book I’ve shared. You might find it interesting to share with other mommies.

  2. Apart from Nancy drew and Hardy Boys, I loved reading classic in school. I was in love with the beautiful old english language. I feel parents play an important role in making their children love literature as much as they love their gadgets.
