Current Reading Mood: Urban Fantasy
Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Book Blogger Hop- June 24th, 2011




This blogger hop was created by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.

Here are the rules:
1. Enter your book blog link in the Linky List below (be sure to include how long you've been blogging and what genres you review!). If you post about the Hop on your blog, please link directly to your Hop post (don't forget to answer this week's question - see below!).
2. Visit other blogs in the Linky List! Make new friends! Follow new book bloggers! Talk about books! Rave about authors! (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)
3. Post about the Hop on your blog! Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier!
4. In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!):


“When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?”

I can't recall exactly when it was, but reading has always been a part of my life. My mother read to me very much as a child and I guess I just kept hold of that. I've always read off and on and visited the library as much as possible. I loved book reports in school, because I got to read for the whole class. Although, the last six or seven are when I really buckled down and read so frequently. I read at least three novels a week(lately) sometimes one a day and on slower times only two a week. I'd love to read a book a day forever, but I can't bet on having the time! 

How about you??

Hi! I'm a new follower. First off, I just have to say: that header? Gorgeous! My mom was big on literacy when I was little. She was persistent and it definitely paid off. I read anywhere from 2 to 5 books a week. I can't get enough!

Hey! Book reports were fun, right? :D
Mom's teaching how to read seems a common theme between us :)
BTw, my reply to your comment below:
@Jade - Two books rule, probably cause the library was due to a trust, in Mahatma Gandhi's name, privately managed..A free library (most public libraries in India are crap) is pretty rare. A good free library (like the one in my small town) is rarer still.

Thanks for visiting!

Ooh, this is great. I forgot that I used to have those books that had tapes that accompanied them. They were mostly for Disney stories and whatnot, but I would listen to the tapes for hours and read the books with the pictures too. I guess, I should have cited that as my first sign of loving to read. :)

I love that your mom read to you as a kid. I think that makes a big difference. Not so much the parents forcing the child to read, but introducing them to reading at a young age. I never really had that so much. My mom wasn't opposed to reading, she just wasn't really into it so I never was until I was an adult.


Thanks for stopping by my blog hop as well. Sorry I didn't get back to you until now! :)
