The Atlantic recently took a look at what factors set the stage for someone to become a lifelong reader.

Unsurprisingly, demographics play a role, but parents or guardians hold huge sway as well.

See how your own upbringing corresponds with the prime conditions for raising a bookworm and let us know if you’re an exception or, in fact, the rule.

(We match just about every prediction for what makes a lifelong reader, as it turns out. Thanks, parents, for the strong example!)

Melanie, how sad that you had to seek refuge, but how wonderful that you had such a perfect refuge in books!

The reason I started to read early in my life, is to mentally escape the environment I was living in. My Father was an alcoholic, and there was a lot of screaming and yelling in my home. Instead of crouching in the closet, I escaped with a book. To this day (I am 70 years old), my greatest pleasure is reading. I am so happy the Kindle was invented. (I have 3)
