How I View Literature {Lake Wylie Lifestyle Photographer}


April 1, 2013

Hi there! Welcome to the  journal about our lives, travels, fashion, and style. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm Amy.


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.

    Nice job, Amy!! My son’s favorite book as a toddler was also a Dr Suess book, Are you My Mother? He could recite it word for word too. When we read it, we always had different voices and if we didn’t do the voices when we read it, wow, we were in for it!

  6. Kimberly says:

    Such sweet pictures Amy! I loved your post. You should record your son reciting the book. I so wish i had done that!
    I am right there with you. No more laying on the sofa relaxing with a book or magazine! Although one day we will be able to and we will actually miss not being able to. Ha! Isn’t if funny how that works!

  7. Camille says:

    Go, Dog. Go! was one of my favorite books when I was a child. My daughter loves that book too. I love the part when they had a dog party at the end.

  8. Brigette says:

    “Do you like my hat?” 😉 “Go, Dog, Go” was a favorite in our house too!

  9. Julie M says:

    I love your post Amy! What you wrote is so true – I also read mostly from my iPad but want my children to experience books. Go, Dog, Go is one of our favorites too.

  10. awww I hope you get some time to read for your self as well! So sweet that your son is loving it!

  13. Emily says:

    Awww…a favorite in our house too 🙂 I often get asked the question “Do you like my hat?”. Love the perspective over the feet.

  14. Brennan says:

    Oh Amy-that first shot of the socks just made me get a lump in my throat–it’s just one of the endless details of daily life with little ones that is almost always forgotten. It made me think about how much all miss all of this little things when they are grown. Oh I am going to take pictures of all their socks right now! lol!
