Interview About My Reading with Baby Bookworm by Becky Levine

Becky Levine, who I have met in person, really became my friend through our interactions on our blogs and Facebook. She has always been particularly supportive of my efforts to raise my daughter to love books. When Baby Bookworm was born (nearly 3 years ago), Becky gave us Caps for Sale and In A Blue Room for Baby Bookworm's library. We adore them both.

Becky is a freelance writer and editor, as well as a speaker at writing clubs, conferences, and critique groups. She is the author of The Writing & Critique Group Survival Guide: How to Give and Receive Feedback, Self-Edit, and Make Revisions (Writer’s Digest, 2010). She blogs about reading, writing, and life in general at

Becky recently interviewed me about my reading with Baby Bookworm. She asked insightful questions like this:

"I know from your Facebook posts that BB definitely spends time on her own with books. Is there a difference between the books you and she read together and the ones she reads to herself? Do you think her self-reading times are mostly when you’re not available, or do you see her choosing times to read by herself and times she wants you to share a book with her?"

You can read the interview here to see my response. I do hope that you'll take a few minutes to check it out.
