Blog Hop

Friday's Blog Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy For Books.

This week's question: “When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?”

That's a great question, but I have no idea! I have always been a reader. One of my first memories is travelling with my parents to see my dad's family and in the back of the car where I sat I had an enormous stack of books. Obviously when I was in school I began to notice that not everyone enjoyed reading, and by the time I was in high school I knew that reading wasn't really a cool thing to do. However, I couldn't stop. It was only during college when I had too many books to read for class and too many opportunities for socializing that reading took a back seat. Once I had more time, I was right back to reading. I think my own girls are much more aware of their enjoyment of reading and the desire to read every day.

I am going to enjoy reading other responses to this question. I love having an online community that has connected me to other book lovers and people like myself.

I can remember when I wasn't much of a reader. But I'm sharing a different story this week. I realized how important books had become in my life in 1999. Come see what happened.

When did I first realize I loved reading? I wish I could prove a pre-natal predilection towards books but my memories don’t stretch back quite that far.

The earliest memories I can recall involved books. First having them read to me then reading them on my own the minute I had the ability.

Books have been a major part of my life ever since. My passion for the written word knowing no bounds, I started writing books on top of reading them about ten years ago.
