Book Blogger Hop - June 24th



This week’s question comes from Elena who blogs at Books and Reviews! Thanks for submitting a question for our Hoppers, Elena! Be sure to visit her blog and tell her thank you!

“When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?”I think I realized I loved reading when my oldest sister started working part time
at sixteen for our public library. I used to love to ride along when my Mom dropped
her off for work and check out as many books as I could carry. I would read for hours and hours and my Mom would actually beg me to do something other than read.
I guess I was in third or fourth grade and have been reading ever since. Plus
now I work at the library myself!

When did I first realize I loved reading? I wish I could prove a pre-natal predilection towards books but my memories don’t stretch back quite that far.

The earliest memories I can recall involved books. First having them read to me then reading them on my own the minute I had the ability.

Books have been a major part of my life ever since. My passion for the written word knowing no bounds, I started writing books on top of reading them about ten years ago.

I miss those days as a kid where there was so much time to read. It was my only responsibility.

Just dropping by for the blog hop. It seems like a lot of people started reading at a young age and then just continued on. It was like that for me.

I love going to the library. No matter what's going on in life, it's one of those places that can just make the day much better!
