Indoctrinated by the book meme


When growing up did your family share your love of books? If so, did one person get you into reading? And, do you have any family-oriented memories with books and reading? (Family trips to bookstore, reading the same book as a sibling or parent, etc.)

You can reply to this book meme here or play the game at the home of the weekly Thursday meme: BTT . Here's my reply:

I have fond memories of my mother reading to us around the kitchen table when we were already reading independently. My fondest memories are of: The Hobbit and The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe series. I have vaguer memories of the learn-to-read books like Amelia Bedelia but I know we must have read them all. I think we took ten books out of the library every two weeks during the summer months. The set number was so that we would know how many to search for if one got lost!

Happy memories. I've always been a "lucky kid."
