You can tell how much I love the books in the little box by their battered spines. I found this old Chronicles of Narnia set while I was visiting my parents this weekend. These were the actual books that made me fall in love with reading and writing. I read The Magician's Nephew first, because I liked that it had a picture of a girl with long green hair on the cover. I remember having a difficult time understanding the book but loving it all the same because it was full of danger and magic and when I read it I felt as if I was being transported to another world. I still love all those things, which is one of the reasons I write fantasy.
So what about all of you--what book/books made you fall in love with reading or writing?
P.S. I also love the books stacked behind my beloved Chronicles!
