A girl who reads

A year or so ago I ran across an essay about why you should date a girl who reads by Rosemarie Urquico. You’d have to ask Brett, but I’m pretty sure he’d agree that dating a girl who reads was better than dating ones who didn’t. In fact, we’ve had a few conversations along those very lines. Even better, I dated a boy who reads and it’s been great.

We have conversations about what we’ve read recently. We make regularly trips to the bookstore. We both have a list of books we want to own long enough to keep anyone needing gift ideas set for years. And when I say I want to cover two walls of our house with bookshelves and include a library ladder, he doesn’t ask why, he only asks how.

We have very different reading styles. We have different tastes in books. But we both love to read.

Being with people who read adds another level of interest to the conversation.

What have you read lately? Are you a bookworm? What do you think of other bookworms?

    Growing up surrounded by books and a family that reads and makes trips to the library all the time, and the best gift you can give someone is a book, I was surprised to find out that not everyone does that. And to go into someones house and not see a single book just feels wrong. We are house hunting right now and we looked at a house that had a wall of shelves around the fireplace. The shelves were filled with the owners collection of little houses. Dad turned to me and said, so were do they keep their books? :book:

    I love books but I don’t read as much as I used to do, I spend my time doing Family Search Indexing.

    I’m definitely a bookworm. I recently started rereading Bridget Jones’ Diary. Helen Fielding is a genius. And I’ve also enjoyed a steady diet of Goodnight Moon, The Going to Bed Book, and Harold and the Purple Crayon. All my friends are bookworms to various degrees.
