Booking Through Thursday – Family (Sept 18)

btt2This week Booking Through Thursday poses the following question:

Do other people in your family also like to  read? Or are you in this on your own?

Everyone in our household likes to read. We cancelled our TV over four years ago and spend a lot of our spare time now reading, sometimes the four of us in the same room, all sitting quietly reading different books. Some of our tastes are the same, but not always. My wife is a big Diana Gabaldon fan; our daughter reads a lot of dystopian stuff, but she reads lots of other stuff as well; our son enjoys reading Doctor Who, but also has a mixture of stuff on his bookshelves. When on holiday we are always on the lookout for different bookstores and birthdays and Christmas are always times of great book giving.

  1. Well, I feel like a fool. Doctor Who has books? I hope they’re novelizations and not a series that existed before the TV series, because I feel like I should have known that.

    I’ve never read in the same room with someone unless we were both on computers or studying. That sounds nice.

    • The Doctor Who books mostly tend to be extra stories that are still part of the Doctor Who universe. Some of the ones we recently picked up for ourselves are of the eighth doctor who only appeared in one TV movie, so it’s good to get more of his stories like this. There are literally hundreds of Doctor Who books out there, so it would be quite a task to read them all. Thanks for stopping by.

    • It was very liberating for us when we decided to cancel TV. At first the children were skeptical, but they’re not that bothered now at all.
