My mom helped me fall in love with reading. My room was filled with book shelves filled with books to read. I was always encouraged to read. Every night before bed my mom and I would read together, until I was in grade 7 or 8 we read chapter books together. I saw how she enjoyed reading her own books and I followed her lead. She would take me to the public library every week so I could get new books. She is still always discussing books with my friends and I. I know that I will fill my own home with books.
