Being taught how to read when I was 4 years old by my 10 year old sister :)
Attending the American Library Association Conference in San Francisco
Wow. Good question. I'd say it was going to stay at my grandmother's little cabin when I was young. Mo mother took me to the library and she let me take as much time as I wanted selecting books to take with me. I read my books and my grandmother asked me questions about them afterwards. I can see it all so clearly. Such a special week.
Ooh, hard one. Maybe reading Gone with the Wind in a single day? It was just the epitome of the bookworm's perfect day.
Hmm .... can't say I've got one. Other than just getting really involved in a book
Reading all of the Roald Dahl books back to back when I was little.
Mine would be standing in a queue just before midnight with my dad to get the final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter was a huge part of of my life as a child/teenager, and there was a mixture of excitement and sadness to read the final book but because once its was read it would all be over.
Running to the library after school so I can finally borrow the book that's been out for a week, because apparently a lot of kids were also reading it. LOL!
my mother teaching me how to read while holding me on her knees
Going to the library as a kid was always a big deal and fun.
My favorite book memory is a next door neighbor giving me a copy of Anne of Green Gables when I was about to leave Canada with my parents and head back to the States. I loved reading that book.
My mom and dad took me to the theater for the first time to see snow white and then gave me the most wonderful snow white book
My memory is having loads of books and running a library its amazing what we did 50 years ago
Reading to my sister who is 15 years older than me. She’d nod and praise me and I’d be SO happy. A few years ago she finally told me the truth, I was holding the books upside down and reciting from memory! She’d read the Dr. Seuss books to me so many times I had memorized a lot of them. I was probably 3 or 4. I laugh every time I pick up one of those books!
When my girlfriend gave me a copy of Joe-Bob Goes to the Drive-In for Christmas.
when I finished reading animal farm and sat for half an hour having waking nightmares lol!! scary book, that is xx
reading the magic porridge pot when i was younger and still have the book now still love it x
Building a fort underneath our big livingroom table as a child and taking my favorite books with me - it might have been a tad dark for reading, but I loved my little hide-out.
Reading to my brother who is 5 years older than me. :)
My most precious bookish memory is story time with my mom. We still love the same books.
Being presented with a dictionary on my last day at primary school
Hmm, probably getting about 100 books from my son-in-law, mostly hardbacks that he picked up for 10c a book at a book store that was closing down. Marvellous that he thought of me. :-)
Winning book vouchers for an art competition at school and having a whole bookshop to choose from.
Reading Harry Potter with my Dad :)
The first book of Agatha Christie I read Murder in the Orient Express, discovered a great author and was completely hooked.
When I was young my parents gave me a book for Christmas and my love of reading started then and has continued through the years.
Reading Wutherian Heights by Emily Bronte, and I discovered new world :)
Reading my first romance novel, Saving Grace by Julie Garwood. Love the feelings that the book evoked.
So many. Including getting a set of encyclopedias.
Reading my daughter the entire Harry Potter series.
Probably meeting my nerdy bookish amazing friends. My world has changed because of them
(Although I didn't like the book itself...) I got the chance to go to my local Barnes and Noble for the midnight release party for The Cursed Child. It truly was a magical night, and definitely one to remember.
Oh definitely reading Wuthering Heights after I saw the 1992 film version on TNT when I was in Junior High. It was the first classic literature novel I read by choice (not school mandated) and I just fell in love with it! :)
Reading Harry Potter while pregnant
My grandmother reading books to us grandkids before bed.
When my mother read "Pyret" to me, an old swedish bookseries about a hilarious kitten doing all sorts of wrong.
I would say my most "precious bookish memory" is the day I found my mother's old Nancy Drew books from the 1940's, in my closet, and asked her if I could read them :)
The first time I was taken to the public library and told I could choose any books to borrow. I couldn't believe it.
I have so many! Books are a big part of my life but I really loved when my sister started giving her books to me...and I would open them and see that actually they had belonged to my mother first. I loved seeing that their favourites had been passed down through the family.
My most precious would be taking our kids to the library when they were growing up!
Discovering Hugh Loftings 'Dr Dolittle' books in the library as a child
My mum returning from a jumble sale with a whole collection of American edition Nancy Drew books all in hardback. I was overjoyed!
walking to the library as a kid and bring home are full of books . being a pore kid growing up the library was heaven .
Many happy hours as a child pulling my books out of shelves to alphabetise!
Reading The Bobsey Twins books, I used to get them from the library
I remember going to libraries as a kid and loving the fact that I could take any of the books home with me.
Reading guess how much I love you to each of my 2 babies 📚
My aunt librarian learn me how to read and borrow wonderfull books for me from the library.
My little nanny reading We're going on a bear hunt to me and my sister sitting on the velvet ottoman at the foot of her bed.
I will NEVER forget the day (I was 13) when I read Jane Eyre. Reason being was that I CLEARLY remember reading the last page, putting the book down and didn't want to "let go" of my heros. You know that moment when the story finishes but you wish it would continue forever?! It was THAT very moment that I discovered British literature (I am Eastern European, to add :)) and I never looked back since.
going to the library as a kid and getting lots of books
I used to get an annual every year when I was younger and looked forward to that at Christmas. One memory that sticks in my mind was "Santa" used to bring me a sack of presents and one year a present jumped out and hid itself under the wardrobe and we found it mid-January when all the hassle of Christmas and New Year was out of the way. It was a book and had a poem in it by Spike Milligan and I can still remember it to this day. So think that needs a mention too. I also remember the day when I was allowed to go into the "grown-up" part of the library. I felt so adult doing that. Oh and a favourite has mentioned my name in her last three books, not sure she knows how much that means. Sorry for the long essay.
Growing up reading the harry potter books!
My reading The tale of Peter Rabbit and me reading to our children and now our grandchildren. Love when a book grows with you.
Going to the public library after school with my family and borrowing new books. Couldn't wait for library day and definitely the highlight of every week!
Reading Harry Potter x
