#BlogFlash2012: Day Six – Reading
As a child, I spent countless hours in my attic bedroom, reading. My mom once told me she’d worried about me, because I spent so much time alone in my room. The truth was, I was happiest when I was lost in a book.
The love of reading accompanied me into adulthood. Reading entertains me, takes me on a journey, and transports me to new worlds. Reading helps me understand life, gives me an escape, and close, observant reading teaches me to write. I owe my passion for writing–and dedication to craft–to my lifelong habit of reading.

It has to be said.
Thank you Eighty Six!
I was exactly the same as a child, always reading and when I wasn't, I was making up my own stories. My love of books has carried on into adulthood and I'm so happy I was encouraged to read from a young age. Great Post!
Here is my Day 6 post http://wp.me/p1UhOl-7f Hope you enjoy it!
Thank you for the link, Carlie. I've been enjoying your posts so much!
You've captured what reading means to me too. My earliest memories are of reading. I'm never bored as I always have a book nearby.
Thank you, Elaine. Your post today was incredible. You captured the essence of reading in just a few words!
Here's my day 6 post :)
Thank you so much, JB!
Absolutely agree with your post on 'reading'. A great prompt.
Thank you, Lesley! I really appreciate your comment!
I thikn you've managed to bring back memories for all of us, of a quiet corner to escape the world and experience new and fascinating lands!
My post today is somewhat on seeing the "reading torch" handed to the next generation. Enjoy!
Thank you for the link, Melina. That picture will leave me smiling all afternoon, I'm sure!
My mom subscribed to three children's book clubs for me. I'd receive a book in the mail almost weekly and remember running to the mailbox everyday looking for my next adventure!

Great post Terri, I had fun writing my post today because I got to share what I read last night lol. I love how #BlogFlash is bringing me so many great posts!!!
I think a lot of us spent our childhoods like that. It's part of what made us the writers we are today.
This turned into one of my favorite posts. Hope you enjoy it:
Reading makes everything better :-)
Reading…one of my favourite things! Day six: http://thelastkrystallos.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/b…
Spoken like a true writer Terri. Best way to learn to write is to read, read, read and keep reading even when you are writing :)
Reading is one of my favorite things to do!
Here's my day 6:
I've just joined the challenge and couldn't have chosen a better day!
My mum was the same, you know how some parents struggle with having their kids sit down to a book? She had trouble with having me stand up from a book :)
I have a double post: http://word2live.wordpress.com/2012/08/06/flashbl…
and an excerpt: https://wordyliving.wordpress.com/2012/08/06/yay-…
I'm glad to meet you all!
Yep, I was the kid hiding the flashlight under my pillow so I could read when I was supposed to be sleeping :-)
I'm actually caught up on linking now so my latest is in the comment love :-)
A headache almost kept me from posting tonight. I was going to catch up tomorrow. I couldn't stand it, though, so here's my post. I seem to be having trouble staying under 100 words. LOL http://wp.me/p26mcl-ta

I completely agree, Terri. I've chosen an excerpt from my novel The Unwilling Bride. Hope you enjoy!!
Agree totally! There are so many books out there that there is no time NOT to read! Good reminder of some childhood memories for me too. Loved it. Thank you. xx

Little late – I know – but this girl just won't get out of my head!
My younger sister would dob on me for not not playing with her when we were little because I was busy reading :)
Here's my Day 6 response:
Thank you for the link, Rakel!
That sounds like sibling behavior indeed!
Thank you for the link – I very much enjoyed your 'Reading' response!
A bit late. Bibliophiles unite!
Getting lost in books sounds oh so familiar to me! My mother still worries about me walking around with a reading book or notebook. Bought a couple new books today . . . oh dear!
