Brent Kelley asked Ian Welke:

What were your favorite books when you was just a lil' boy?

Ian Welke The first on the list has to be the Lord of the Rings trilogy. My father read it to me when I was five or six, and I wanted to read it myself enough that I went from basic reading (understanding individual sentences and such) to seeing the narrative play out in my head as I read so that I could read and reread that story. I read it pretty much every summer for most of my childhood.

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy came along a few years after that and was another one I read and reread.

Both those series became like comfort food for me.
