This Love of Books...

Every week Coffee Addicted Writer hosts the Book Blogger Hop. Participants answer a question and then visit other blogs of fellow participants. This week's question is:

“Were you a born bookworm or did someone get you into the habit of reading?”

My answer: I think it was both actually.  I had a natural enjoyment of reading but it was fueled by my grandpa who would take me to Books-A-Million every week and let me get $20 worth of Baby Sitter's Club books. From that point on, I always loved to read.

What about you?


  1. Books-A-Million sounds like a place I need to check out! Is this an indie bookstore, or is a chain that I have never heard of.

    Also, I never got into The Babysitters Club, but I did love the Sweet Valley High series!! I can't believe I forgot about that when I wrote my post.

    Thanks so much for dropping by Rivera Runs Through It.

  2. Books-A-Million is like a Barnes & Noble, but I think it is regional. I loved it. I remember the Sweet Valley High series too!

  3. What a great grandfather. So sweet.

    The memories are the best don't you think?

    Happy Hopping!!

  4. Your grandpa took you to Books-A-Million and let you get $20.00 worth of books? EVERY WEEK?! You LUCKY, LUCKY girl!! grandpa gave me only one book, as far as I can remember, and it wasn't one I really liked. It was titled "Five Little Peppers and How they Grew". I was more into adventure -- like "Treasure Island", for instance. Oh, well....

    I've never heard of Baby Sitter's books. Sounds like you really liked them, so I'll have to find out more. After all, I might become an aunt in the future!

    Thanks for sharing, and thanks for commenting on my BBH post!! : )
