This month our blog circle is exploring our unique view of literature.
I find this subject to be somewhat difficult to illustrate given my current roommate situation. You see, I live with 2 very opinionated little people. They do not abide my lazy reading habits of years past. Those days of lounging on the sofa with a book in hand are firmly cemented in my past. Sometimes I wonder if I will move back to that in my later years, and then I realize that books themselves are going extinct. Who is to say that my children will ever get to enjoy a long slow page-turner? Maybe they will only ever identify reading with the electronic face of an iPad (or whatever comes next). I can’t really complain. I am guilty of doing most of my reading on my iPad these days. It’s just so easy. Push a button and WHAM! new book to read at your fingertips!
However, as an homage to how I most often view the literature in my life these days, I present a few images of my son and his favorite book. He can recite this book word for word, every page of it. When I first read it to him he was so much younger than he is now, and I wasn’t sure that he would ever have the attention span required to make it through the whole book. Flash forward to the present, and him asking for me to leave the book in his bed so that he can continue to read it into the night. His love for this book gives me hope for his future, and that he will enjoy many lazy days of his own.
