I had that habit, and still have to make a conscious effort to tell myself to take my eyes off of the book when crossing the road, or walking around in places where I'm liable to bump into something and trip.

I used to read while riding my bike. I crashed once, and the cut got infected and I had to be hopitalized. You can bet I never admitted to the reading part - I would have been killed!

Love of reading came from my mother. I can remember her reading constantly as I was growing up. She belonged to at least one, possible two, book clubs and it was apparent that she loved reading. I was taught to read when I was the age four by my grandfather. He lived on a farm without electricity, so spent a great deal of time reading in the evenings after coming in from the fields. He would sit me on his lap and read the same comic book (yes, comic book) day after day until I knew it by heart. He then sprinkled in the occasional incorrect word and would pretend surprise when I corrected him. He never actually taught me to recognize the printed words, but I eventually found that I was able to read that comic book as well as other books and magazines on my own.

I tend to agree. It's parents/grandparents who take the time to care so much that give some of the greatest of life's treasures.
