Book Blog Hop (6)

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books and is a way to meet new bloggers and check out some really awesome blogs.

This week's question is:  When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?  

I can not really answer this question.  I have loved reading my entire life; I used to get in trouble in school because I would read in class instead of paying attention.  I also would get grounded from reading non-school books because my parents knew that was a really good (i.e. bad) punishment for me.  I would have to say that reading has been a life long love of mine, there wasn't ever one 'aha' moment for me.

What about you?


  1. I love your answer to this week's question! My love of books has never had a start time either. Like, I can't pick a precise moment where I was like, "yup, that's it! I love books!" lol. Because I've loved them since I can remember! haha.

  2. Wonderful answer. I also used to hide a book under my desk at school and read, especially during math class.
    Have a good weekend,

  3. I agree, I don't have one moment, it's been a lifetime thing!

  4. I didn't really get into reading until I was a teen. I realized how important books had become in my life in 1999. Come see what happened.

  5. Once you start reading, it is there with you always.

  6. When did I first realize I loved reading? I wish I could prove a pre-natal predilection towards books but my memories don’t stretch back quite that far.

    The earliest memories I can recall involved books. First having them read to me then reading them on my own the minute I had the ability.

    Books have been a major part of my life ever since. My passion for the written word knowing no bounds, I started writing books on top of reading them about ten years ago.
