Booking Through Thursday – First Time

What is the first book you remember reading? What about the first that made you really love reading?

The first books I remember reading as a child were The Berenstein Bears series. They were my bedtime story for a looong time, and still remain a fond memory of my childhood!

The first books that made me really love reading were The Babysitter’s Club series when I was a tween. I read them all and had them all as soon as they came out. I think I read my first one in 4th grade, and eventually stopped sometime in my early high school years (high school for us was grade 7-11).

Throughout high school we had an added literature component to our language classes, which meant we read up to 10 books a year in each of our French and English classes. I discovered a lot of great books and classics through these modules, and I think it help foster my love of reading today.
