FIR '11: Reading Question #10


FIR is hosted by Katrina at Callapidderdays.

Every Wednesday this fall, Katrina will be posting a question about reading.  

This week's question: In what ways do you encourage others to read or support their reading habits? How do you share your love of reading with others? 

I have always felt that the best gift to give anyone, especially young children, is to encourage them to read. I love picking books out to give as gifts. I always include books as part of my gift for new babies, at baby showers, etc. I have always given my nieces and nephews books as part of their Christmas presents and starting this year, I have decided that for their birthdays, they are getting books. So far, they've loved it!

I love passing on books to my family and friends. Since I started this blog, quite a few family members visit to see what's new and exciting in the world of books. I also love sharing the books I get as review copies with my fellow bloggers. Even when my book club meets, they always ask me what I've read lately, and if I have any books to suggest.

Luckily my husband is also an avid reader, so I don't think we will have much trouble passing our love of reading onto our children when we start our family.

So what do you do to share reading and books with those around you and/or far away?

  1. I love giving books as gifts, too, way better than just another toy!

  2. I always talk about books, and I'm launching a book club for my block, as I realized we had many avid readers, men and women! It will be a "trading titles" book club, meaning, we don't need to read an extra book, but share our most favorite book of the past month. very exciting!

  3. Now with the advent of technology, I have this reader in my phone so I can read my fave books whenever I have time.
