I hope to instill the same love of reading in my girls :)

  113. Judy Hershey says:

    My favorite place to read was on the shelf in my closet, with a lamp for light and the sliding closet doors closed. Now when I think about it, I realize how bizarre that was. I mean there wasn’t anything stored on the shelf in the closet!! My Mom must’ve been the queen of a minimalist lifestyle.

  136. My favorite book was our copy of The Real Mother Goose. I read that book so many times! I picked up a copy of it when my oldest was just a few months old and still have it. Both of my kids have enjoyed hours of reading it with me.

  137. My favorite place to read was under my bed. The frame held the mattresses up high, so there was plenty of room to comfortable lay on my stomach and read. I hid a tiny flashlight under there and would read for hours…

    I’ll never forget the day I fell asleep under there and was woken up to the sound of sirens one day when I was about 8. Seems no one could find me, so my dad called the police, who called the fire department to *drag the creek near our home*! They had looked for me everywhere (so they thought) and that was the last place to look before assuming I’d been kidnapped. After that, I had to show my parents all of my “secret” hiding places!

  138. My favorite book as a child was the Care Bears Book of Favorite Bedtime Stories. Still have it.

  139. When I was small enough to fit, my favorite place to read was under my desk. I even hung my favorite artwork up under there. Later, I enjoyed reading on my daybed, propped up with lots of pillows.

  144. My son LOVES “Press Here”! My favorite book growing up was “Old Black Witch.” My great-grandma used to read it to me.

  145. And my favorite place to read was anywhere! The couch, my bed, the floor, the car … I was such a bookworm. And still am. :)

  146. I always loved Wacky Wednesday as a kid and still do!

  147. There’s no way that I could choose only one favorite, but one of my faves was The Berenstains’ B Book by Stan Berenstain. I loved it! I can still remember most of the words.

    Press Here looks like a really fun book!

  148. I loved to read anywhere, and always had a book with me. In one house we lived in there was a cubby space at the stairlanding that I used as a reading nook.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  185. I was a mega reader as a child (and since – I’m currently working on a master’s of English!). The best place EVER to read was on our porch swing. I would just drift away, sweet tea sweating on the boards under me, feet crossed on top of the arm rest. Now it’s my bed; with two very little girls, I grab any chance to read and relax that I can get!

    Thanks for the giveaway!! We LOVE Herve Tullet!
