Remembering your first...

Tell Me Your Story Tuesday


What's the first book you really remember reading? 
Mine would have to be The Secret Garden

A teacher recommended it to me after seeing I was flying through The Fudge Series, Ramona and Choose Your Own Adventures. (Thank you, Mrs. Moore~ You are still one of my favorites!)

It was the first book I downloaded to my kindle. 

 I moved on to Judy Blume, S. E Hinton, and Robert Cormier.



and thousands of others. 

But The Secret Garden will always hold a special place in my heart.  There is just something magical about your first. 

So, tell me your story. What is the first real book you remember reading? What books will always have a place on your shelves or in your e-reader?
