I can totally relate to this C.S. Lewis quote! It seems that the older I get, the younger my reading taste becomes! I have only read a handful of books that were not considered teen or children books. I have loved teen books even before I was a teen, and they continue to be my go to choice. My favorite age group for books right now is ages 9-12 or middle grade. I have a special place in my heart for the age group 6-8 or early readers as well,…and that special place in my heart just seems to keep growing. Who can’t resist a great storybook? Reading a really great story out loud to a room full of children just gives me the best feeling in the world!
What it really comes down to is that I’m actually not embarrassed to tell people that I primarily read children and young adult books. I’m sad to say that I once was! I used to hate the looks that people gave me and the comments about immaturity and acting like a grown up.
The fact of the matter is I am proud to say that I know exactly what is inside that book that your son or daughter is reading. I consider myself pretty darn great at recommending books that you will love and get the most from! And I am proud to be a helping hand for a cause as important as literacy for our future generations!
Not to mention kids books are just fun 😉
So, do what you love!
Everything else will fall in place 😉
