What is the first book you remember reading? What about the first that made you really love reading?
This is a hard one since I have to remember from many, many years ago. My mother always took credit for my reading addiction as she would say that she would always give me books while I was in my playpen…this I don’t remember. I do remember that I always loved books and and every month while in elementary school we would get an order form from Scholastic (?) and I would ask my parents if I could buy some and luckily they always said yes. I also remember winning a contest in 2nd grade and the prize was the book PT109 by John F. Kennedy. But I think the book that really hooked me and left an impression, to this day, was The Anne Frank Diary. I can even remember the imagery I formed while reading that book. I wish I had kept a journal from when I started reading to today just to see how many books I have read in my life, it has to be thousands.
