Monday Memes

MONDAY
Before I get to today's memes, I have a special message on this very special day to a special person in my life, my husband.  Happy 30th Anniversary!!!  It doesn't seem possible that we have been married for 30 years.  We are fortunate that we have 2 very successful, handsome, caring, wonderful sons.  We have been through good times and bad, but made it through, due to our love and respect for each other.  I would do it all over again.  Looking forward to the next 30.  I love you!!!!
happy anniversary #3

Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
This week's question:
When you were little did other children tease you about your reading habits?
My answer:
Oh so many years ago, but as I recall, I really don't think so.  Back then, though, it was mandatory that we were given a summer reading list with a number of books that had to be read and reports written.  I remember how some of the kids absolutely hated the assignment, whereas, I couldn't wait to see what books were on the list to choose from.  I was the kid who was at the library getting books the first day of summer vacation.  I also remember my summer reading spot, which was under a huge tree in our backyard, the perfect spot on hot days.

April is being hosted by Amy from Passages to the Past
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of  A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”
Before sharing my mailbox, I want to thank Amy for being so kind to host one of my favorite memes.  I look forward to stopping by every Monday.  Thank you Amy.

First of all, Happy Anniversary Cheryl! My husband and I had our 30th last year. Guess we'll keep them, huh? LOL

And is that the new book by the author STILL MISSING? I haven't read the first one yet, but this cover looks a little creepy!

Oh, I share your MM memories...and the oh so many years ago part.
But yes, I too fondly remember the summer reading list part. I loved it!

I was never teased about reading when I was younger. I think I get teased more now about the number of books I read!

Politics and Pasta looks interesting :)
