My mother and father were the main reasons that I fell in love with reading. They both were passionate about Shakespeare and poetry and we would spend time as a family reading either of these. When my parents past away at 95 and 98 years old they could still quote any Shakespeare play and most traditional poems, I only wish I had their ability to do this. Although Shakespeare was never my favorite and I don't choose to read it anymore it was spending these afternoons and nights sitting with my parents and brothers and sister reading that has made me such a strong and passionate reader today. Now I enjoy many different genres of books however my most favorite would be fiction novels that follow along with a true story. I love when a book has a bit of historical background immersed within the storyline. I miss the days of reading with my parents or listening to them quote an entire monologue together, these were some of my favorite memories growing up.
