Book Blogger Hop (16th-22nd August)




The Book Blogger Hop is hosted at Ramblings Of A Coffee Addicted Writer and gives bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. All you need to do is answer this weeks question on your blog, enter the link to your post here then visit other blogs on the list and comment on their posts. This weeks question is:

Were you a born bookworm or somebody got you into the habit of reading? 

My Answer:

I've always enjoyed books and reading but whether I was born a bookworm or if it was because my Mum loves books and read them to me I don't know. I used to think it was because of her influence, but now I have two daughters, one who loves reading and one who doesn't. This is despite the fact that I read and look at books with them both. This may change and I don't want to force her and put her off reading for life. My brother was never as into books as me when younger but now reads a lot and has a Kindle.

  1. I think some children are born voracious readers, and some aren't --- and for the ones who aren't, it can be tricky to encourage them, without making them feel like reading is a chore. Sometimes, all it takes is the right book or the right author. :)

  2. I believe a mother does have a great influence on whether or not a child enjoys reading. I read constantly to my child, and he is an reader. I agree about your not forcing...the love of reading will come. :)

    Enjoy your day!!

    Happy Hopping!!

  3. I read to my kids and bought them books all the time, and they all started out loving to read. As they got older, they went on to other hobbies, but still read once in a while.
