Snuggle up with a good "guk" (Madison speak for book)

From the time that Madison was little she has always LOVED her books. Being a big reader for as long as I can remember, I have really enjoyed seeing how much she loves to read and hope that it becomes a lifelong passion. She has a bookcase in the living room that is packed to capacity, another in her bedroom, and a shelf full downstairs. We read them so frequently that I can recite many of them for you word for word. Her favorite books change from week to week: this week she loves Goodnight Moon, Guess How Much I Love You, and her cloth Christmas Story book. She loves to go get her bedtime care bear, her blankie, her sippy, and stack of books and crawl up and make herself comfortable. You can pretty much guarantee that at any given time there are books strewn all over our living room floor. If it means that she will continue to love reading as much as her mommy than I will happily read, pick up, and read again all of her beloved guks!

Madison seems to especially enjoy reading with her Grandpa's, and I think that both of them enjoy that special time together just as much as she does. What do you think?
