...or why books and tv rank higher than sleep

Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays is hosted by MizB at Should be Reading
This week's question is:
Who in your family (both immediate & extended) are readers, and who are not?
My husband is also a reader, but he doesn't read as much as I do. That's probably changed since lately he's been downloading more mp3 books from the library in lieu of reading a physical book. He goes through books a lot faster in the audio version.
My Dad is a huge reader. His whole side of the family is actually (well parents and siblings at least). I like to say I'm a genetically predisposed bibliophile, and we share a lot of books (mostly adventure and history). I fell in love with the works of Bernard Cornwell thanks to my Uncle Brian's contribution of The Archer's Tale and now he's my favorite author.
Strangely enough, my Mom doesn't read much and neither of my siblings are readers. My brother reads Guns & Ammo and Bass Pro Shop circulars. My sister reads a bit, but it takes her forever to read a book. And she won't see a movie if she's reading the book until it's finished. Which is a family joke because she still hasn't finished Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which she's been working on for years. So she has only seen the first 2 movies.

Passing on the love of reading is gift!

It really is a gift. I think my love of reading is probably thing I am most thankful for inheriting. It certainly isn't my broad shoulders ;-)
