Musing Monday is hosted by Rebecca from Just One More Page.
Today's musing is the following:
Do you remember how you developed a love for reading? Was it from a particular person, or person(s)? Do you remember any books that you read, or were read to you, as a young child? (question courtesy of Diane)
I can't remember for sure, but I know in first grade there was this bookshelf in the front corner of the class room. I devoured everything on that shelf. I asked the nun (Catholic grade school) if I could go to the library, and she said, "Sorry, but first graders are not allowed to go to the library."
I was devastated. When 2nd grade rolled around, I remember borrowing the Nancy Drew books, in order, and also the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. They were on the shelf for 3rd and 4th graders, but the teacher told the librarian I was an advanced reader, so I was allowed to borrow them.
I have loved to read for as long as I remember. I had tons of books growing up, so that probably came from my mom. I remember her taking me to the "big" library too, and explaining the rules.
Unfortunately I can't remember one book in particular, except for one. My Uncle bought me a children's Bible for my birthday one year. There were some pictures, but for the most part it was all words. Bible stories written for children. I really liked that book.
How about you? What is your earliest reading memory?
