Today I am thankful that my parents let me read banned books, old books, over my age limit books, books that I should have outgrown, books that nobody else let their kids read, silly books, awful and trashy and horrible books, really just any books.
I am so thankful for their reading! My mom reads anything she can her hands on (and I was proud to be able to put a Kindle in her hands this year). My dad read magazines and trade publications and loved audio books on long car trips (he usually got the gist of it, but he never really paid much attention to the details).
They were readers. Now I am a reader. I get to inspire others to read.
THAT TOTALLY ROCKS!
Today I am thankful for my awesome parents and their love of reading. That is a feeling that is better than all the Bling in the World!
