My Reading Influence

Anyone can have minor and major influences on your day to day life.

Whether it be from the way you dress, act, or even talk.

“You don't have to be a "person of influence" to be influential. In fact, the most influential people in my life are probably not even aware of the things they've taught me.” -Scott Adams

I want to take the time to let you all know about someone who has been the most influential person in my life and is the reason I read as much as I do today...

“He who influences the thoughts of his times, influences all the times that follow. He has made his impress on eternity.” -Unkown


Reading almost every night to your kids sure did pay off Mom!
Decided not to put a picture up since she might find out and go straight for the jugular ;)

I'm sure a lot of people say their parents are there biggest influence in most things and it's really true. My mom is no exception. She read to me when I was little and kept doing it while encouraging me to read as well. I guess you can say I became a nerd at a young age :P I'm guessing my twin didn't acquire the same 'nerdness' because we are complete opposite. Literally like the sun and moon.

Ever since I can remember, I've been in love with libraries and books. She even encourages my writing, which is saying a LOT because my writing is HORRIBLE!

So, who's you biggest reading influence?

Once Upon a Review

Likely my mother as well! She read to me when I was a kid before bed time as well.

Of course I don't know how to twist this, but because I had bad leg problems as a kid and couldn't play sports or do a lot PE, I sat on the sidelines a lot, and eventually I got to reading to pass the time away. And I read a LOT! When I was 13 I started reading any vampire book I could find which wasn't a whole lot, now I have so many other options than vampires it's fantastic!

Reading the Harry Potter series made me want to read more.
