Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
Will you be buying books for the holidays, this year? If so, for whom, and why?
Yes!! Am so excited about it that I have already purchased them. (Hoping the recipients aren't reading this.)
When my boys were small, reading was part of our daily routine. Plus they always saw me with a book, we would take walks to the local library and when we went to the mall, we always stopped in to B&N or Borders where they were allowed to pick out books to add to their R.L. Stein collection or any other books they wanted to buy. But then they became teens and books for pleasure got shoved under the bed along with all their other trash.
Now that they are older, so has that old habit returned. My younger son reads while on the train to and from his job. And recently when hubby had his surgery, my oldest was able to drive in and be at the hospital with me, and I was stunned to see as we waited, he was sitting there reading a book. YES!!!!! So my hard work all those years ago paid off. So one of their little gifts to open is a book that I hope they both will enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed buying for them.
