First Love...of Books!

Greetings Book Lovers! So, I am brand new to this blogging thing and, quite frankly, looking forward to jumping right in feet first. Not sure how exactly this is going to work yet. In a nutshell: I am a major book gobbler, word muncher, book loving bibliophile. With that said, I guess the opening post will be about (drum roll) BOOKS! Here are a few questions, and I'd love to hear your stories!

What is the first book you remember reading and falling in love with?
How old where you?
What was that first read-thru like for you?
Have you re-read it since?
Is this book still in print?

For myself, this is the first book that I remember reading and falling hopelessly in love with:



I was nine-ish years old and utterly starstruck by Mr Bradbury's fantastical storytelling. And yes, it is absolutely still in print and I have read it over at least a 1/2 dozen times over the years!

Congratulations on starting a new blog! You're going to be addicted soon -it's a lot of fun.

I'd answer your question if I had a specific answer. There was never a certain book that I fell in love with -it was just books in general.

Thanks, Taren! You are my first post-ee! Yay! And you're right: I think I am going to quickly become addicted to this. Excellent.

I know what you mean though; it's hard for me to pick a favorite these days. I love books in general, too. Without a doubt, I could spend a whole day wandering a bookstore and searching out those hidden treasures....ahh, books!
