My parents helped me fall in love with reading and with libraries. We visited the library weekly, and brought home stacks of books. My mother read to us before bed and my twin brother and I chose the longest books so that we could stay up as late as possible. I used to read in bed in the dark with a flashlight after I was supposed to be asleep! My parents are still avid readers and model for my own children that reading is a life-long pleasure.
