Have all of you heard of Carina's excellent weekly feature called Reading Roots? Each week on her blog, Reading Through Life, Carina has one book blogger talk about their early reading influences and experiences, letting us catch a glimpse of the “roots” that each person has built upon in forming their identity as “a reader”. It's a feature that I really enjoy, so I was thrilled when she asked me to participate.
This week it's my turn to talk about my early days as a beginning reader. One of the things that made this so much fun is that Carina very graciously allowed me to include small photos of the women who helped me become the bookaholic I am today.
I hope all of you take the time to visit Reading Through Life to read my guest post. If you've never been there, I hope you take a look at all the other content Carina has to offer. She has a wonderful blog!
Note to Newcomers and Regulars:
If you've never visited Kittling: Books before, welcome! I hope you'll spend a bit of time wandering around and seeing what there is to see. It's not all crime fiction here; there are posts about my growing up in a library, going out on unpaved trails here in Arizona, some of my personal photography... it's not all about whodunit!
To my regulars: I'm not sure when I'll be back in the saddle. I have some weekly posts that are scheduled all the way into next spring, but it may take me a while to get back to normal. I spent nine hours in the hospital emergency room Saturday, and although I'm feeling much better, some of my parts need to be overhauled. While all that's being scheduled, I'm going to take it very easy by reading lots of books and taking lots of naps.
Enough of all that. I've never been a fan of doctors! Please go take a look at my Reading Roots!
