This week’s Booking Through Thursday asks:
“Do you have siblings? Do they like to read?“
I do have a baby sister. She isn’t a bookworm like me but she does enjoy reading. She was (and is) more into playing sports and watching reality shows like The Amazing Race, Fear Factor ; etc. When she showed an interest in books (as I was always lazing around the house with one tome or another) I gave her books that I thought would appeal to her nature. I recommended books like Wuthering Heights and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and she seemed to enjoy them all. She has actually become quite addicted to Agatha Christie! She has already devoured more than a dozen titles and has currently taken away my ‘only’ copy of The Mysterious Affair at Styles. So, I think I have managed to ‘infect’ her a bit with my love for reading!
My sister isn’t as into books as me but she does enjoy reading and it’s nice having someone to go to the library with me and look at books. 🙂
My sister too is a reader but not a voracious one like me.
It’s great she followed your lead. Mine is at http://katybrandes.wordpress.com/2012/05/03/siblings-may-3-2012/.
I am glad that my ‘lazing around’ with books has had at least one good effect! 😉
That’s great, I hope she continues with it.
I hope so too!
I’ve tried but they would rather wait for the movie lol. Here’s my BTT
Oh that’s sad!
A good kind of “infection.” Thanks for sharing, and here’s MY THURSDAY MEMES POST
Ah yes this is the kind of ‘infection’ I hope every one gets. 😉
So nice that you and she love to read.
I love it too. Otherwise it gets a bit lonely, you know.
It’s nice when you can share a love of reading with siblings. My brothers and I often recommend books to each other.
I love recommending books and receiving recommendations from like minded readers! My sister has yet to recommend anything to me but I do more that enough ‘recommending’ for the both of us. 😉
Good job. It’s always fun when someone gets infected with the reading bug.
Hi! Thanks for dropping by my blog! I’m glad I got her reading too.
Hehe, nice job there. Reading really is like a virus, but I love that. ^^
My BTT answer this week
Thanks! This is one ‘virus’ that I hope many more catch! 🙂
