I am a life-long bibliophile. I think this is because my parents read books to me all the time. Do you think this is common anymore?

I am one as well but it’s more because I couldn’t read as a kids but I knew the power of books. I collected them knowing I possessed world and knowledge within their covers. Only when I got to high school was I able to begin to unlock their power. Now I’m a school librarian.

wow! what an inspiring story!

I believe parents play a major role in if their child reads! My parents read to me all the time and I love to read still. My husbands parents never read to him and I can’t even get him to read about football (which he coaches)

Thank you for sharing that! I am a bibliophile also, but I did not know it is a thing!

I loathe Monday morning meetings. We have a monthly team meeting at 8:00am PT and it makes me so mad! 😂 It’s always on a Monday, and I have the hardest time getting motivated for them. Normally I wake up at 6:30am, check the news, stocks, shower, eat breakfast, get dressed and start answering emails at 8am.. no speaking meetings until 10am. However, on the team meeting Monday’s, I’m scrambling to do my morning routine and get setup to present/share my screen.. I hate them. We all hate them lol!
