Musing Mondays - Family Reading

If you'd like to play along on Musing Mondays, just click the button above to join in.

This week’s musing asks…

Do the members of your family read? Do you think it was passed down to you? ((or, if you want you can answer this: Who do you think influenced you as a reader?))

My answer...

Honestly, I haven't a clue as to how I became such an avid reader. No one in my family is a big reader. I can't remember ever really being encouraged to do much reading when I was younger. I remember hating literature and English classes. I hated reading any of the assigned books. Somewhere down the line (in high school), I became a huge Harlequin reader and eventually I just branched out to read other lines and genres. I guess I just did it on my own.

  1. I disliked literature classes all until college and loved them but still had a hard time reading what was scheduled.

  2. It's great that you got into it, even if you did it on your own.

    Here's mine:

  3. I wasn't too found out English classes either in school - I hated dissecting the books!

    My musing can be found here.

  4. No clue either, neither my mum or dad reads. But my grandma did read romance novels

  5. I do come from a family of readers and we always had lots of books around.

    That picture of the kitten being fed is precious.

  6. I used to read Harlequin a lot. Haven't read one in years though!

  7. My parents were not big readers, but did have a large bookcase on our upstairs landing. Each night we would take a book, from the bookcase, to bed.


  8. No one in my family while I was growing up was a big reader, so I don't know where it came from in me! Although I wasn't raised by my Mom as a kid, we are close now and she is an avid reader. Who knows--maybe it's in the genes! LOL

    As for my boys--I couldn't pay them to read a book!
