“When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?”
Reading isn't really my passion, but it became important to me once I had my son. I love staying home with him, but it uses a different part of my brain than school did. I love to analyze and hypothesize and discuss, and reading gives me the chance to do that. I think that's why I like to blog about books, too. I have to (try to) defend why I did or didn't like something. And I love it when there are comments that challenge my ideas.
Thanks for keeping my thoughts sharp! :)
Summer Love: Where is your ideal place to take a
summer vacation & get lost in a book?
I brought a book when we went to San Francisco and never opened it. But my favorite vacation places would either be somewhere with my very spread-out extended family, or the beach. I love the sound of the ocean and finding seashells and not being cold!
