This week's question is:
Does your significant other share your reading passion?
My answer is:
Hmmm. I think the key word is 'passion'. He reads, but he does not share my passion for it. He would say he wasn't a 'nerd', but I think perhaps he is.
About 18 months ago, he/we ended up with my dad's Kindle, which has about 55 books on it. Rich/Handyman started reading them---but not choosing which ones he would like first, but rather he began reading them all in a row! He just started with one and is making his way down the list.
THAT IS NERDY and not passionate, wouldn't you say?
(hey he called me weird the other day)
Once in a while he will come upon a book that he's already read and he just passes it and goes to the next one in line. It's a good thing he and my dad had similar reading tastes.
Another example of reading passion---
when we go on a vacation, he takes 1 book. One. I take the one I'm reading, the one I want to read next and then a spare, just in case I don't like the next one, or am not in that mood at the moment. Then I also take a non-fiction and a cookbook or two to glance thru.
(This of course is if we are taking a road trip---Nevada is long and wide and we often spend hours in the car and I am lucky enough to be able to read in a car.)
So, yes, he does like to read, but no, he doesn't share my PASSION for it.
