  2. "How did your love for books start?" Before I could read, with a book of Grimm's fairy tales, full of tales of hideous, gory vengeance.

  4. Wow. That's taking me way back. LOL I do remember loving it when I learned the alphabet. And I remember my first trip to the library. The smell of all those books and being able to choose as many as I wanted to take home.

  5. When I was 2 or 3 we lived on a farm and when my Mum went into town she would say that if I behaved myself she would buy me a Little Golden Book. I loved them and collected quite a few and my sister would help me to read them. I have loved books ever since ( over 50 years)

  7. Lovely selection of flamingo items!
    Unfortunately I don't get time for reading. I tend to spend my time doing stuff for others, especially charity, as I see that as more important than doing stuff for myself. But I have a lot of books waiting for when I can get some "me time".

  9. I always loved reading but for a while I only read educational stuff, historical, biografphieas and stuff then after watching the Twilight moovie( I know clishé but I was 14) I read the book and realized how much better it was than the actual moovie. Things went naturally from there.

  15. When I was very young and got sick my mom, who doesn't read a word of english, bought me this series of books that were fairy tales. They were hard covers and I have a few still, but that started me out (plus my dad always read as well and when I was in my teens I'd grab his sci fi paperbacks and read those)

  17. My love of reading was probably due to my mother who loved to read and always took us to the library with her. I've read from an early age and enjoyed all books bar a few but still read them to the end in the hopes they'd improve along with the story line.

  25. Wow, that's a good question. Hmmm... I have loved reading as long as I can remember. One of my earliest memories is of my dad reading one chapter of the Narnia books to my siblings and me each night and we begged for "just one more" but he'd say with a laugh "You have to wait until the next night." It fired my imagination!

  28. When I was little. I was deemed stupid in first grade and was sent to a ‘special’ class. I was given a one on one tutor once a week where she would read with me. I liked the attention and really tried. Through that I learned to love to read.

  29. To be honest i can't remember how my love for books started, maybe since my earliest memory can recall, since my parents read me fairy tales, or since I learned to read. I remember I learned to read, it was comic of Donald Duck. I remember I brought home books from Elemantary School's Library. Winston Churchill's Biography, a fable like approach about Bee and Grizzly, andmany more. I remember i borrow a pile of books that I determined to read all everyday. Then i was busy to read school books during teenagers and a lot of other activities i didn't read a lot books anymore. It has been on and off eversince but deep inside I 've been always loving books, and when I happened to read book I really like, it would be easy for me to be absorbed and time would fly.

  30. I have to thank my dad for my love of reading and writing because he read me fairytales every single night. When I started school aged 3 I was so surprised that most children still couldn't read and spell well. I am now a final year English Lit university student :)

  33. My mom told me that I know how to read when I was 4 years old. And all I even wanted was to read, even the newspapers did it for me. She often says how funny I was, when I didn't have anything else to read, she had to write me a story :)
