message 10: by Carrie (new)

Carrie Gulledge (momtognm) I've always been a big reader; I've loved romance and fantasy most of my life. The Belgariad and Mallorean Series by David Eddings and Piers Anthony's Xanth books were some of my earliest favorites.

message 11: by Olivia (new)

Olivia I think what really got me started reading was Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone by J.K Rowling. I remember after I read the Harry Potter series I went into the bookshop and asked if they any thing else, I was so desperate.

Hannah Lee (hlbookworm) The Mortal Instruments series got me started. It was just so interesting and so fun to read! I'm a huge binge-reader now! haha

message 18: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Stoolfire I've been a reader, but the series that really kicked my obsession into gear is Harry Potter.

message 19: by Isabella (new)

Isabella Surprisingly, it was a little picture book called Froggy Goes to School by Jonathan London. My fantastic Mom used to read them to me until I was old enough to read them myself. Who knew such little things could create something so big. :)

message 20: by Lu (new)

Lu (lu_herondale) | 20 comments Harry Potter, in 2006. Actually, i was started in the lecture myself in 2008, first, my mother (who, as well as me) i a huge HP fan, read it to me at night. She stoped doing it in the middle of the third book, i was curious and i finished it. Since then, i havent stoped.

message 21: by Colleen (new)

Colleen | 65 comments I have always loved reading but the books that got me started on like avid reading and being obsessed with books are the nancy drew books and divergent. :)

message 22: by Benita (new)

Benita (starscries) | 33 comments Twilight got me into reading, think it was in 2010 or something :)

message 23: by Rhystlynne (new)

Rhystlynne (inkbottleburning) | 168 comments I probably got started reading with the Geronimo Stilton book...which I still read.

Zombieslayer⚡Alienhunter (theslayingisthunter) | 173 comments Christine by Stephen King.
I've always enjoyed reading, but I had a really hard time with it when I was 10-11.
I just stopped liking it.
but I took Christine off my mom's shelf and, even though it took me a month to read it, I loved it.
I wanted to read more books by Stephen King, and just like that I was into reading again.

Storm Arashi (stormarashi) | 33 comments Don't Go to SLeep by R. L. Stine. I had just moved to my town and I was so bored, I needed something quiet I could do, so one day while my mom and I were out we stopped into a used bookstore and I found the Goosebumps section. I picked out a few books and I didn't stop. It scared me of course, I was ten and a chicken at times but it was so much fun. That was the first time, I ever read a book without pictures and I never looked back. Before that my mom used to read to me every night before I went to sleep, she had been doing that since I was a baby. It's a big part of why I love books so much now.

message 26: by Crystal (new)

Crystal (wisegirlonfire) When I was younger I read the American Girl books, but probably Percy Jackson got me into reading

message 27: by Cynthia (new)

Cynthia (fullycyn) | 17 comments It was A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett for me. I think it was around 2009. Until now the book is still my best favorite read <3

message 28: by Nix (new)

Nix (nixd) | 50 comments Percy Jackson got me into reading! My friend told me I should read them, and I said, " I'm not really into Greek myth, and I know nothing about it." Then, I read the first book, and I was like O MY GOD!!!!! Anybody now who says I know nothing about greek myth will be laughed at and would be kidding themselves.

message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

The book that got me started....oh gosh.....I think it was the second Magic Tree House book, which I read when I was seven

Same. I have always loved reading.

message 35: by Haley (new)

Haley | 79 comments Hm.... I have to say that the books that got me into reading were the Junie B. Jones. I wasn't really big on reading when I was little, until about second or third grade, when I first started reading the Junie B. Jones books.

message 36: by Desert Rose (new)

Desert Rose (desert_rose) | 7 comments The Lightning by Dean Koontz

I bought it from a store in an airport somewhere and left it on the shelf for a couple of years. But when I stated it I was hooked and that was the beginning of serious novel reading!!

AJ (the.booknerd.reads) (thebooknerdreads) This is such a cliche answer, but Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

message 38: by Nova (new)

Nova (jbriana) | 10 comments I started the Percy Jackson series way back in like, fifth grade. It's still my favorite series to this day.

John Bentley (jaybeetrs) | 2 comments Kipling with the Mowgli series when I was a kid. In my teens: Conan Doyle with Sherlock Holmes and other books he wrote. Baroness Orczyy with The Scarlet Pimpernel and Sapper with Bulldog Drummond -the forerunner of James Bond. Tolstoy and Kafka and Doestoevsky .Then Ian Fleming and Bond. That's 60 years ago now! And now I have started reading history again and writing it too. Would be interesting to know of any of this group have read any of these once great books.
