I can safely say that I got into blogging because of my love for words. And where did that come from? Books of course!
A book lover can never have enough books to read, can they. My parents started us off rather young on books. My Mum would read to me regularly, so much so that I knew some stories by heart and could rattle them off by the page. She would show me off to unsuspecting people who thought I was really smart to be reading whole sentences at 3!
My ‘dowry’ consisted of two large boxes of books and I’m lucky I married another book lover. He indulges my crazy collection. Thankfully, we have moved to e-books, or pretty soon, we’d have guests sitting on books! 😉
I’ve had to stop myself from laughing when a blogger told me s/he doesn’t like reading! “Please stop writing”, I wanted to say. But instead, I’ll focus on my own love for reading and invite you to share about yours.
Today’s prompt: Books. Do a review, tell a book related story, write a poem about your love for words, talk about your favourite author…..The possibilities are unlimited.
I hope you’re enjoying the Festival of Words as much as I am.
