I also got a love of reading from my sister. I read way above my age level, so she was always loaning and reccing me books. When I was in the 4th grade she told me to get The Outsiders and Lord of the Flies. In the school library, I couldn't find them, so I asked the librarian. She told me that they were in the high school section and I wasn't allowed to read them. So my sister went to the school library the next day and checked them out under her name and gave them to me to read. Those books may have had material I should not have been reading at that age, lol, but they are both still big favorites of mine.
Also, as it turns out, she read to me when I was too little to do so. At least, that is the evidence we found when we came across these pictures recently! (apologies to my big brother for not bothering to crop him out, ssshhh he'll never know).
There are a million and one reasons I love my big sister, but instilling a love of reading in me is definitely one! Happy Birthday, Sis! I Love You!
