I love to read. In fact, when I get into a book I can be a little obsessive. Last month I read 3 books. Maybe that’s why I didn’t get some of the other things done that I had planned. Oh well! Reading is one of my guilty pleasures and I can think of worse things to indulge in. My book club cancelled for today. There were several reasons. One, a couple of the people could not make it and two, no one, other than me, read the book. I need someone to get on their horse and read it. This was a book I really liked and I’m anxious to talk to someone else who read it and get their take on it. The book was “The Storyteller” by Jodi Picoult. I will do a review on it later in the week.
I started to think, I know a dangerous endeavor, where does a love of reading come from? My mother reads the paper religiously but I can’t remember her ever reading a book. Dad on the other hand loved to read and always seemed to have a book going. He was also the one who read the bedtime stories. Kids love being read to. There are books that I still know by heart from reading them to my kids and . . . their friends. My daughter’s best friend loved “Green Eggs and Ham”. I know every word Sam I am! My kids loved “He Bear, She Bear” and I still remember reading “The Cat in the Hat” with Dad.
I saw on line that the Doylestown Bookshop at 16 South Main Street has a Story Time on Monday’s at 10:00 with Miss Larissa. It features music, books, crafts and more. The recommended age group for this story hour is 2-4 and they ask that you stay with your children throughout the story time. Sounds like a fun thing to do with kids or grand kids on a rainy Monday. For more information you can contact the bookshop at 215-230-7610. Or check out the web site at: http://www.doylestownbookshop.com
