Think about it Thursday is a little meme of my own that I started last week for kicks and giggles. Every week I'll ask a bookish question, something you'll have to 'think about' a little. Ah, see what I did there? Then you just post your answer on your own blog or in the comments if you'd rather go that route. Be sure to share your link so we can check out your answer.
This week's question is one I've been contemplating lately as I've been trying to encouraging more reading among my own kids.
What is your earliest memory of books or reading? Was it a positive or negative experience?
I have been reading or been read to for as long as I can remember. My elementary school had a ice cream/Popsicle stand every Friday where you could buy treats after school. They also had contests every year and whoever read the most in their grade won free popsicles for the next year. I remember winning practically every year and getting free ice cream every Friday. I even got a trophy one year. Some kids have soccer or dance trophies, I have a reading trophy. I suppose that's a positive experience. :)
So what are your memories of reading?
