I'm with you, I don't think love of books is in the genes.
Upbringing, maybe. In my case, none of my family are book-lovers, and in my
case the fact that I had a lazy eye when I was about 8 or 9 and Mum was told
by the doctors to make me read, led to my being a book lover.In fact if
there are no books around, I'll read the labels on jam jars.!! None of my
daughters are, but my son is.!!! My eldest daughter trains racehorses, and
only reads books in relation to her job. So I think it's a pretty hit or
miss sort of thing.!! Take care.
