Both parents, but mostly my mother. Tom Send a noteboard - 15/11/2011 06:51:38 PM
My mother read to me every day while I ate lunch (mostly to distract me enough to keep me eating without thinking about it too much) for years. However, my father tended to read more sophisticated books to me from time to time in the evening. It wasn't a constant or uninterrupted sort of reading (we would have breaks of a few months even) but it was memorable.
Political correctness is the pettiest form of casuistry.

ἡ δὲ κἀκ τριῶν τρυπημάτων ἐργαζομένη ἐνεκάλει τῇ φύσει, δυσφορουμένη, ὅτι δὴ μὴ καὶ τοὺς τιτθοὺς αὐτῇ εὐρύτερον ἢ νῦν εἰσι τρυπώη, ὅπως καὶ ἄλλην ἐνταῦθα μίξιν ἐπιτεχνᾶσθαι δυνατὴ εἴη. – Procopius
