How old were you when you read your first book?

Not the teeny tiny "see spot run" kinds of books that have a maximum of like 15 pages and 50 words, but something like Charlotte's Web.

How old are you now?

  • Probably around 6. I was into the series called the Box Car Children. I'm 52 now.

  • I was 6 and read The Boxcar Children and it was not a series then. I am 61 now and read all the time and so grateful to have had teachers that instilled a love of books early in my life.

  • Probably 6 or so. I was reading small words at 3, but I can remember reading Ramona Quimby books and The War with Grandpa and other books pretty young.
