What is the first book you remember reading? What about the first that made you really love reading?
My favorite books as a kid were Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham (and just about every other Dr. Seuss book) and Green Bear by Alan Rogers. When I say I read those books about a million and one times as a little kid, I’m not kidding. Which brings me to a semi off topic moment, one of my baby brothers LOVES Green Eggs and Ham the way I did growing up, so when I read it to him its like I’m 6 years old all over again.
As I got a little older the books that kept me reading where the Magic Tree House series. I remember all throughout elementary school I would read them over and over again. I remember wanting to go on all the adventures that Jack and Annie got to have, but only being able to read the books. There’s also a lot to learn from those books and I think my insatiable want of knowledge was probably instilled while reading them. They also helped me to develop my love of reading by keeping my crazy 9 year old self completely tied up in a story and leaving me curious for more.
I cannot remember exactly what my first book was, but I had never been an avid reader until I was in high school. First book was a Dr. Seuss.
To this day, I still have Dr. Seuss on my bookshelves. I love them!
I can’t recall my first book but I do recall that, I was hooked on Enid Blyton. She, in a way, has influenced my interest in Crime fiction.
Then I used to devour the Nancy Drew books along with Hardy Boys. However, but those came much later.
