Booking through Thursday


Inspired by Booksplease
Whether you usually read off of your own book pile or from the library shelves NOW, chances are you started off with trips to the library. (There’s no way my parents could otherwise have kept up with my book habit when I was 10.) So … What is your earliest memory of a library? Who took you? Do you have you any funny/odd memories of the library?
My earliest memory of libraries would be those I encountered in school, and the public library I visited regularly with my mom. I have always loved libraries and, of course, books! My mom always took me to the public library. I definitely received the love of reading from my mom, who is a big-time reader. All my memories of libraries are good...a favorite place of mine:)

Thank God for reading mothers! I had one too.

Isn't it great to have parents who are readers and can support/enable your bibliomania? I'm one of the lucky ones, too.

You are blessed to have those kinds of memories.

So many of us owe our love of books and libraries to our mothers!

Frankly I owe my love of reading to my dad! My mom reads but dad introduced me to books!

I don't know how they did it but my parents got me to read before I attend kindergarten. I was reading so fast my mom was kinda forced to take me to the library. lol

Isn't it great when our parents instill a love of reading in us? It leaves us with such great memories! :D
