The first novel I remember voluntarily reading was Shanna by Kathleen Woodiwiss. I swiped it from my mom and read it under the covers with a flashlight when I was 12. As an adult, I rekindled my love of reading with a Nora Roberts book. Sadly, I don't remember the title. I do know that I was working as a substitute teacher and the book was on the teacher's desk. I got hooked and had to go buy it that afternoon so I could see how the story ended!

I think it was either Are you There God it Me Margret? or Sweet Valley High books. As an adult it was Catherine Coulter Star series.

The first book I remember picking out at the school library was The Door into Summer by Robert A. Heinlein, after that it was The First Men on the Moon by H. G. Wells. I find sanctuary in other worlds.
Thank you for this giveaway!

The Secret of the Old Clock a Nancy Drew mystery. My mother always read to us, and I know that is why my brother and I love to read. My fifth grade teacher was also a wonderful lady, who read the Hobbit to us and that opened new worlds of reading as well.

And the winner is: TANIA! Email me your address at louisa @ louisaedwards . com, and I'll send your prize right out. Thank you to everyone else who commented!

Congrats Tania!
