I fell in love with reading from an early age. I can still remember begging my mom for a quarter so I could buy my first books from a neighbor’s garage sale. The books were fabulous stories featuring those timeless heroes, Dick and Jane. And don’t forget their faithful canine companion, Spot. I was four at the time and thanks to my Sesame Street education, I taught myself how to read those books long before kindergarten began. The written word held mysteries and adventures, and I couldn’t wait to enter that world.
My fascination with books grew along with me. The books listed below represent a loose timeline of my reading life. The titles vary from children’s literature to young adult to mainstream fiction to general market romance to Christian romance. As you can tell, from day one, I preferred historical titles. Some things are just in the blood. Ha!
