Bookworm Memories : Reading in a Tree

July 20, 2013 Bookish chat, bookish habits 0

What is the first thing that comes into your mind when you think of childhood reading?  Is it the name of the first book you read on your own?  A much loved series?  A certain author?  For me, it’s none of those.  The first word that comes into my mind is tree!

Great post, Trish! I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately, so this is definitely more motivation to check out my stats and make sure I’m marketing my blog appropriately. 🙂

Yes, this was a favourite book but that is not the reason why.  And no, I haven’t lost the plot!  And no, I’m not paying respect to all those trees that dedicated their lives to books.  But when I was a child, we lived in a house with woods on three sides of it.  And from all those trees, there was one perfect tree where I spent hour after hour, day after day reading.  What makes a perfect tree?
 
Ø  It was the only one I was able to climb!  Yes, I wasn’t exactly dexterous!
 
Ø  It was within ear shot of my house but far enough away that I felt like I was exploring
 
Ø  There was a perfect branch for my back to snuggle against as I read and another to sprawl my legs out on
 
Ø  There was even a big hole that I could keep books in while I took a reading break.  Yes, I never thought about any little animals that might also like that hole!  Yikes, retrospective shudder!
 
Ø  It had a great view and in spring was surrounded by bluebells
 
Ø  Enough leaves to keep me (and my pages) dry in the rain
 
Ø  Those same leaves kept the glare of the sun from my pages
 
Like I said a perfect tree.  And when I think of childhood reading, that’s where I picture myself.  Finding new worlds every day from the safety of a tree in my back yard.
