Last night was a first in our family…the four of us (husband, son, daughter in law, and me, the ravenous reader) sat around after dinner discussing the books we’d been reading.
My son has always been quite a reader, but my husband and daughter in law have only recently come to enjoy reading as a regular pastime. And so now we have an entire family of readers, vying over who has read the best book and which movie was the most faithful to it’s novelistic origin (The Reader or Revolutionary Road).
Because we live so far apart, there aren’t a lot of things the four of us can do together. Now, whether it’s during the long summer days in Florida, or the cold winter ones in Michigan, we’re all sharing the pleasure of reading.
And that’s nice to know.
Now tell me, is reading a family affair at your house?
