The love of reading

I can identify with the title to this blog because I AM always with a book. From an early age I fell in love with reading and have never stopped. I keep a book stashed for any downtime I have and often have two or three I am reading that I bounce back and forth from. I read all different genres often picking up a book that reflects my mood (and why I usually have two or three going at the same time). I consider myself lucky my parents instilled this love of books in me and that they made reading such a joy. This love of reading is what inspired me to write which I have done from a very early age. I wanted to create stories much like the ones I was reading.

As an only child I had many fantasies in my head and was able to entertain myself that way. I thought surely if I could entertain myself with the imaginary characters in my head if I put them to paper I could entertain someone else. That started me on the road to writing as much as I was reading. As an adult I still have the stories in my head but unlike when I was a child I am able to get them out in full (most of the time) and get them published. I am so lucky to be able to share my stories.

The love to read is a great gift. One more important to me than writing even is. Reading is entertainment, it is knowledge, it is a way to enjoy solitude and relax. If you haven’t done it in a while pick up a book and try it. I promise you it will be enjoyable.

About the author: Laina Turner-Molaski is a businesswoman, mom, author, Professor, and a major supporter of shopping. She has an undying love for shoes and coffee, which is why she created her main character and alter-ego Presley Thurman.

With a lot of letters after her name and a ton of student loan debt, she is always working to pay the bills. While she enjoys her day job, her passion is writing, and she uses a lot of company time writing her fiction or working on her social website for women, She is hoping to sell her book before she gets fired from her day job for goofing off.

Laina is currently living in Indiana, with her family, and is always writing something, whether it’s blogs, articles, business journals and books or ideas for her next novel. She is continuously doing what she loves which is writing or drinking coffee.
