Our family is crazy about books. True fact.
It's rare to find someone in this house without a book in their hands. Okay, okay we probably would need to count electronic devices in that too, but it's safe to say that we are always reading!! We try so hard to all have dinner together as a family but there is always someone (usually the youngest) that just can't put down the book because "I just got to the best part!". I admit we usually end up with a quiet dinner while everyone reads their own book of choice. I've heard it said that if kids see their parents reading, they will develop their own love of reading as well. Making sure your kids have good, rich, character-building literature is an excellent way to help your kids grow up in this crazy world with a bit better sense of self and with strong character formation. If they start out early with rich literature, that is what they develop an appetite for.
