Question and a New Book
Today, The Facts Behind the Helsinki Roccamatios came in the mail from Bookmooch. I'm a fan of Life of Pi, so hopefully I'll enjoy Martel's earlier work.
On the other hand, I'm thinking of issuing myself a moratorium on new books. I have a few books on my shelves that I haven't read (though most don't really interest me either...) and there's always the library. I really can't afford new books in terms of space or money. Someday.
Now, to another book meme question: What is your earliest memory of reading or being read to?
To be honest, I'm not sure. My parents read to me all the time as a small child, so much so that I memorized books and thought that meant I knew how to read. I remember books like Nicholas the Bunny, Goodnight Moon, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, a book about little cats that ate cereal, and more. My mom read me the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. The first book I learned to read was about Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street, I remember struggling with it. Later, my dad and I read the Chronicles of Narnia aloud together (I had already read them), and I carried on the family tradition by reading Harry Potter aloud to my little brother.
