Making Up For Monday: The Reading Life
It's time for Making Up For Monday! This is a weekly meme hosted by me that asks some fun literary questions. Feel free to play along!
This week's question: When people ask you why you read so much, what is your answer?
Besides saying "because reading is awesome"? Honestly, I tell them I was born into reading. My parents read to me often as a child. I have vivid memories of my dad reading and doing all the weird voices and sound effects that go with it. My mom would read longer books to me as well; ones that would take weeks to get through.
So, as an adult, reading seemed like a very normal thing to do.
I honestly think I am more surprised when I find out there are people who don't read at all. Seriously, why not?!
What about you? Do you get the question a lot? If so, how do you answer?
