Bookish Fact #5: My mom made me a reader.
(sorry for the two week hiatus guys. I’m blaming the holiday weekend and internet issues)
My mom is definitely the reason I am an avid reader today. She was the one who taught me how to read. She introduced me to the joys of mystery by getting me into The Boxcar Children series. She sparked my imagination by reading Hank the Cowdog before bedtime and giving each character their own unique voice.
Mom drug me to the local used bookstore at least once a month, and never declined a requested afternoon trip to Hastings. She’s the reason I give books as gifts to my nieces and nephews.
I honestly don’t know what life would be like without all those stories influencing my life. So, thanks Mom for sharing the joy of reading! And developing my love for a good mystery. ☺️ You’re the best!
