Tell me #2: Books

I'm thinking back. Years and years ago. The day I started to love reading. The catalyst for this love: Daughter of the Empire by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts. I never looked back since. Inhaled fantasy like air. Tell me, what book sparked your love affair with reading?

  1. I'm not familiar with this book, but I need to give it a try.

  2. It's so irritating because I can't remember the title. It was an old book lying around on the floor of an apartment I lived in for a few months one summer while at University. It had no cover. It was the first vampire book I'd ever read and I just ate it up. I often think of that book. The first childhood book which introduced me to reading generally was called DOG, and I just loved that book. Shah .X

  3. @Patricia = It's fantasy at its finest.

    @Shah = could it be an Anne Rice novel? (insert title here).

  4. I always loved to read. I can't remember the first book, but I do recall my first love affair with a book series: The Belgariad by David Eddings. Then I moved to Raymond E. Feist's Magician, and so on... I still own the same copies of the books that I bought when I was a kid (well, not the Belgariad, those fell apart I read them so many times), and have passed them on to my children.

  5. It would have to be all those books my mother read to me from the book of the month club. Here's a link to some of them.

  6. Ironically enough, some of the first books I recall reading were the Laura Ingalls Wilder series of books, The Little House on the Prairie about her life in Minnesota Why ironic? Close to thirty years later, I took a chance and threw caution to the wind and moved to MN, hardly knew a soul but knew that I wanted to work/live here. Best decision I ever made so you could draw the conclusion that my interest in reading has come full circle as I read now more than ever ( an avg of 70 books or so a year; 101 last year.) thanks Kate, Mike.

  7. @Angie = Bad blogger! Anyway, I love Eddings too! My favorite scene was when Garion attempted to lift a boulder and ended up sunk neck deep in the ground. ahahahaha

    @Sharon = My mom said she read me books, but I don't remember. Weird.

    @Mike = I love it when a book or the love of reading comes full circle. :-) Thanks for sharing.

  8. OMG I read the Feist/Wurts series when I was pregnant and it gave me nightmares....of course I could have stopped reading them but they were too good so I put up with the crazy nightmares and finished the series...loved it.

  9. @Heidi = It is quite a heavy read, isn't it? But I love the culture and the intrigue. Awesome series.

  10. The Neverending Story by Michael Ende. It's a fantastic book, and if you've only seen the movie, you have no idea of how strange that book gets.
