Live A Thousand Lives

I love reading.
I have tried to instill the same love for it into my girls.
I may be in for a hard battle with genetics because my husband is the opposite when it comes to opening up a book.
In fact, he lays claim that the last book he read has the word Goosebumps in its title.
As in RL Stine….from elementary school.
Told you it was going to be a battle. 
But I’m stubborn and ruthless.
My girls will love reading like me.
In all seriousness, I think my girls are well on the way to a path of loving books without my intervention.
So when I took this photo of my nine year reading to her little sister I remembered this:
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies,
the man who never reads lives only one.”
True story people.

    Excellent quote! My side of the family is full of readers, and my husband loves to read too. So I’ve got my fingers crossed mine will inherit that love as well. She has so many books and we read all the time. Best past time!

      I agree. Reading would be one of my favorite past times too… if only I HAD the time to read. Lately I haven’t been able to really sit down and enjoy a good book.

      Thanks! Her room faces west and has the best lighting in the evening. The down side to this is that during the summer its like an oven in there! Whew!

      In regards to partners that don’t read….One of the good things lately is that a lot of the books I have read have been turned into movies or mini series. So I get to enjoy them with my husband that way. 🙂 And thank you for your compliment!!
