#LetsDiscuss: A Relationship With Reading

In recent years we’ve seen reading and books take many forms, from the likes of a company, Amazon, selling books online to reading books on electronic devices to listening to books via audio apps, reading, thankfully, is still a thing! I, for one, have let my love for reading, fall by the wayside over the last few years, however, for 2021, I am vowing to read more. My favorite reading material today includes multicultural literature, poetry, cookbooks, and magazines. But when I was younger, I had different reading tastes. Also, if you are 40 and over, much of what we read was required reading for class.

I was a Scholastic junkie back in the day. As a poet, my favorite book was Honey, I Love by Eloise Greenfield and the Shel Silverstein books, including Where The Sidewalk Ends. For fiction, I loved To Kill A Mockingbird and the older Judy Blume books like Superfudge. And I’m dating myself, but back in the day many of the children’s movies were often accompanied by a recording (on LP record) and a read-a-long book. I had alot of those.

I saw this discussion in a Facebook group @bgrtbookclub (Black Girls Read Too) and thought I would borrow it and continue the conversation here! Whether it’s ONE book or a LIST of books that launched your love of reading, please share. Can’t wait to see your books! #LetsDiscuss #40AndOver #moderndayadulting #ReadABook #readingisfundamental
