Literary Blog Hop
The Blue Bookcase hosts this awesome new-ish blog hop, and I'm happy to participate! This week's question is:
How did you find your way to reading literary fiction and nonfiction?
I've had a great love of reading since I was very small. My earliest memories of books revolve around my mother reading to me every night for many years. We delved into many classics, such as the Hobbit and the Chronicles of Narnia and Little Women, A Little Princess and The Secret Garden, as well as many "biographies for kids" called Value Tales, which featured the lives of many prominent figures in history. So through that I not only gained a love of descriptive literary prose, but also of learning about the people and events that have shaped our past and, therefore, our future. I owe it all to my mom, and I will happily pay this gift forward when I have children of my own.
I look forward to hearing about your literary beginnings!
