1 minute writer - READING

Write about a childhood memory related to reading.

For most of my childhood, we didn't have a TV, and so in the evenings, my mother read to my younger brother and me. Those are some of my happiest memories of my childhood. There was a big, scratchy, blue striped armchair in our living room, and Mom would sit in that chair, and Dave and I would try to crowd in with her, and she'd read us a chapter a night. I remember The Yearling; Old Yeller; Where the Redfern Grows (all three of us wept), among others. It was time well spent; Mom instilled a love of reading in both of us.

I so relate to what you said here. I have always loved to have someone read to me. I remember my second grade teacher reading us a chapter a day from Dr. Dolittle. I was absolutely mesmerized. I usually always have a book on cd in progress around here. I guess I will never outgrow my love of hearing a book read.

I know what you mean, and reading to my own children, and now grandchildren, is one of my great pleasures in life!
