I'm A Reader, Are You? (Blog hop)

We are doing our first blog hop on Grab A Book From Our Stack called "My Journey To Reading For Pleasure." Karen asked me to share my journey here and link up over there. We'd love it if you would share how you became an avid reader too and link up.

I love to read! I read anything and everything! If I am in a store, I stop at the magazine rack and browse. If I go into a restaurant and see those newspaper boxes by the door, I'll stop and read as much as I can. We bring along the PLAIN DEALER to Hometown Buffet when we go for breakfast on Saturdays. I take a book to work to read on my breaks and at lunch, then I'll usually read some in the evenings too. I try to read 50 pages a day. I love to browse in bookstores and usually do whenever we go to the mall. I read customer reviews on to see what other people think about books I consider reading.

I remember walking with my mom to the library every other Saturday as a kid and reading sports books.  I remember the librarian saying "He reads too many sports books and should try something else."  I did and now like non-fiction best.  I enjoy learning about things and events that I've heard about.  I've always been big on reading!  Thanks to Karen, I am on Shelfari.  She posts my stuff there for me so now I can keep track of what I've read.

I sometimes read sitting at the table, in a chair or laying on the couch or the floor.  I can read in any position, at any time of the day and anywhere.  Our cats often join me. During the summer, I like to read on the porch.  What about you?  Where do you like to read and how did you get into it?

Daisy's "mom" here:
I love to read, too! I carry a book to work with me every day and read at lunch and on breaks. I always have a separate book at home that I'm reading, too. I just wish I had more time to read.

Oh my gosh--I love to read too! My husband says I'm the only person he's ever met who truly LOVES the smell of books. I do...and I could spend hours upon hours anywhere that has them--library, book store....whatever!! In such a fast paced world sometimes it's nice to just pick up a book...and chill. ;-)

I like to read anywhere. I enjoy reading all sorts of books. Lately, I've been reading lots of historical Chritian fiction. I first got into reading from my first grade teacher. She read this novel to us called "Snowbound with Betsy"...and she'd read a little everyday and I was hooked. I was sad when the book ended because I wanted more adventure!! She said that smart people read a lot. so as a first grader, I wanted to be smart so I read a the time I was in third grade, I was reading/spelling at a 12th grade level!!! Reading is so much fun and it makes you smart!!! Greetings from Oregon, Heather :)
