here to join in with Linda at Mocha with Linda for Flashback Friday.
Linda's Prompt: Did you like to read when you were a child? What were your favorite genres, books or series? Did you read books because of the author or because of the title/plot? Did you own many books? Did your school distribute the Scholastic book orders (or some other type)? Did you visit the library often? Was there a summer reading program when you were young, and did you participate? Do you have any particular memories of your school libraries? What were your favorites and least favorites among the classics (the ones high school English teachers assign!)? If you didn't like reading, do you like it more today than you did then?
Then in high school, I remember getting into the romance books. I still love a good romance book, but I only read the Christian ones now. I can be pretty sure they won't get explicit and I much prefer that. My dad's not a real big reader (except for the Bible), but I'm so glad mom was and she instilled that trait in almost all of her 5 kids.
