Booking through Thursday - Sept 29th

 A Weekly Meme Hosted by Booking Through Thursday 

1. What do you think of reading aloud/being read to? Does it bring back memories of your childhood? Your children’s childhood?
2. Does this affect the way you feel about audio books?
3. Do you now have times when you read aloud or are read to?

An interesting question....I know my mom had to read to me constantly before I could read myself, she tells me stories of having to read the same books over and over to me. I remember loving the Mickey Mouse sorcerer book and us having to try and find it when we went into doctor offices, and also The monster at the end of the book. She said they thought I was reading earlier than I was because I started saying the book, but it was from memory lol. So yes, this brings back good memories (even though I don't really remember them, but more of stories of the memories.)

As for audio books - I have a confession, I've never in my life listened to one. They have always held zero interest for me. I couldn't imagine someone else controlling the pacing of a story for me. I'm the type who pauses at the parts I've been waiting for and then slowing down, re-reading a sentence or two as I go along. That wouldn't work with an audio.

As an adult I'm never read aloud to and I dont read aloud to others, with the exception of my ten year old.
