One of the things I appreciate most about my mom is that she always encouraged my love of reading growing up (even when I did it at the dinner table, and in the car, and in the bathroom, and . . . well, you get the idea). She didn't even get (too) mad when I let the water run for 20 minutes without putting the plug in the bathtub because I got distracted reading Laura Ingalls Wilder's By the Shores of Silver Lake. So thanks, Mom! See, reading at the dinner table wasn't rude — it paid off. I'm an editor now!
Happy early Mother's Day to all the great moms out there — I know several of them work in our office! Take time this weekend to tell your mom thanks. And in honor of Mother's Day, share some of your (and your mom's) favorite reading memories with us!
