It's interesting to see the percentage of male and female who read in families. VISIT SPORTOCHICK’S MUSINGS ANSWER
Yes. It will be interesting to see the answers. Thanks for stopping, Teri.
My mother and sister are both readers. I pass my books on to my mom and we usually discuss them after she reads them.
Wonderful!!My sisters discuss books with me along with all my blogger friends and book club buddies.Thanks for stopping, Kathy.
How interesting! I wonder if more women than men read, or if it's about equal. In some families, it seems to be the females who read, but this might not always be the case. It's great that you can discuss books with your sisters, just as you can with your fellow book bloggers and book club buddies!Happy Reading! Have a great weekend!! :)
That is a tough question.I have no males in my book club, but I know there have to be men who read.Thanks for stopping, Maria.
Hi,I'm the only one in my family that is a reader. My sister will pick up a book now and then. Have a great day!
We need to get other family members "hooked."Thanks for stopping, Sherrie.
My daughters do for sure. My husband is more of an online reader.
Awesome on your daughters. :)Thanks for stopping, Stefanie.
It's so interesting to see how many female figures most bloggers listed compared to male figures. I wonder if it's all due to gender stereotypes or genre based on male interest availability.
Interesting observation, but I also see what you are seeing in terms of male vs. female.Thanks for stopping, Lulu.
My younger son was a very reluctant reader. Then his Grammy got him a Kindle one Christmas and now it's hard to tear that thing out of his hands! :O)Here's my Book Blogger Hop.
That is wonderful, LuAnn.Good he keeps his reading close. :)Best present ever.Thanks for stopping, LuAnn.
It's funny, because the majority of the big readers in my family are female, too. Though to be fair, because my mom had nothing but sisters, the male to female ratio is a little unbalanced.Thanks for stopping by earlier!Kristine @ The Writer's Inkwell
:)A bit of a one-sided ratio. :)Thanks for stopping, Kristine.
Such an interesting mix! Does everyone read the same genres?
My sisters and I mostly read the same books. I usually supply them. :)My son reads a few of the same genre as we do, but he does read genres I don't.Aunts and Uncles usually read heavier stuff. :)Thanks for stopping, Tonyalee.
My daughter and my daughter-in-law love to read, and my grandchildren like to read. I always try to get them at least one book for Christmas. :)@dino0726 from FictionZeal - Impartial, Straightforward Fiction Book Reviews
Wonderful that your girls read.Do they like the same genres and share books?I always bought books for gifts for my son and nieces and nephews.Thanks for stopping, Diane.
It's great that your sisters like to read too! Do you all share and recommend books to each other, or do your reading tastes differ? Thanks for visiting my blog! I'll keep trying to get my mom back into reading. I think I might be able to get her to read Me Before You. She borrowed it the other day, so we'll see. Enjoy your weekend!
I hope you get your mom back into reading.My sisters and I like similar genres, and we share books or at least titles. I usually provide the books since I have so many. :)We all are in different book clubs and get good and bad ideas there as well. :)Thanks for stopping, Kim.
My brother came to reading later in life. He thought it was a chore until he finished school. My mom is a reader as was my dad when he was alive. It's been interesting to see everyone's responses to this question. Readers are born from all sorts of families, aren't they?
