Book Club Thursday: What Does Reading Mean to You?

This week we have a wonderful topic to talk about for out Book Club Thursday. We are talking about what does reading mean to you... We all read for many different reasons, some of us read to learn, others to relax and to lose ourselves for a little while.  I believe I do all the above. I started reading when I was a kid. I saw my aunt reading and wanted to be just like her so I started reading. I can't tell you how grateful I am to her. She opened up my world to places and worlds I could never go to any other way.  She would bring me books and I'd read them and we'd talk about them and have a bonding moment.  I've had many bonding moments over books and reading. If you follow me then you know I'm a huge romance reader. I love books with happy endings.
