Five questions answered by the BookshelfTracker community
1.) Did someone read to you when you were a child (who, what, when, where, why)?
My earliest memories are from my mom reading to me and my brother. My mom was a librarian in town so reading was always a big part of our life. She would read through a book (a chapter a night) and send us off to sleep.
