Question of the Day

My mother. She read to me until she died and then my father did until I was too old for bedtime stories. The day my wife told me she was pregnant with twins, I started reading to her tummy. Even when she went out of town, I would ask her to put the phone to her tummy so I could read to the babies. I have been reading them a bedtime story every night and will continue once they are born.<br />

My mother, who read whenever she had a chance and had a little story, poem or quote for just about any occasion. She bought books for me and there were always books in the house. She sent us to the bookmobile when we were kids and lived too far away from a library to visit. When our tiny town finally built a library, we were there all the time.

Though she never finished high school, my mother read everything she could. At a very early age, she told me that I could learn anything I wanted to... satisfy any curiosity... even in subjects outside of the school curriculum... just by reading on my own.<br />

Best Answer

my mother. she taught me to love books

Best Answer

I was an awkward child and I found shelter in books. I also had an excellent English teacher who said to truly experience a story you had to "willfully suspend your disbelief". I found that if I did that, I could escape my problems. I still love to loose myself in a good book, but sadly, I don't read as much as I used to. Don't know if its my lifestyle or the lack of good books. I suspect the former.

The author Nicolas sparks has really made me love reading.

Best Answer

I taught myself to read at age three through Dr. Seuss, then Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, and eventually Sherlock Holmes mysteries and things such as 1984. Reading drew me in because it was so different from anything else I'd ever seen. The thought of little squiggles on a page translating into words that I could lose myself in... Reading's just fantastic.
