Using a suggestion from Erin today:
When growing up did your family share your love of books? If so, did one person get you into reading? And, do you have any family-oriented memories with books and reading? (Family trips to bookstore, reading the same book as a sibling or parent, etc.)
You know, there are many ways that I am different from the rest of my family, and reading is only one of them!
I have no idea if my dad reads at all. I can't remember ever seeing him do so. My mum reads infrequently. My sister likes to read, but she finds it difficult and can read the same book for months. As for my younger brother, well, he reads a bit.
I most certainly can't remember taking family trips to the bookstore or the library, or anything like that. In fact, I can't even remember my mother reading with me for school.
It is one of the things that I am trying to do differently with my son. We often go to the bookstore and library together. When we go to Borders it is more likely to be me whining and saying "Can we go now" than the other way around! Another thing I try to do differently is to take him to exhibitions and museums and art galleries. Some times it works....sometimes it doesn't!
