Over the last six months or so my daughter has really gotten into reading. She reads when she gets up in the morning, reads when I’m working, reads on the subway, and often reads between the time we get home and dinner. I’m not sure why she became so much more interested in the last 6 months – my best guess is that her reading improved so much that she started finding it to be enjoyable rather than a chore.
And, of course, I am thrilled. I’ve loved reading since I learned how and as I’ve mentioned, I read about a book a week. I’m sure I’ve influenced her interest in reading. Even if she didn’t see me reading so often, we have piles of books all over the house and we read together every night.
