Yes, I read as a child.  I was a voracious readi, in fact.  In a little town of 600 when you are the oldest and your sisters are 5 & 6 years younger than you, that's pretty much what you do. 

My favorites were the Little House series and the Nancy Drew mysteries.  Usually, I was reading one of each at the same time. My heart would beat faster with each suspensful page turn of Nancy Drew.  I could feel the wind in my hair as I ran across the prairie to greet Pa when he came home from town.

I loved all those books and have encouraged my daughter to read.  Happily, she has loved those books as much as I did.

I loved the same books.   Sadly, my stepdaughter has just picked up reading in the past few months, so she's outgrown the Little House and other wonderful young reader books.

I'm excited she's reading now though.  It has been a lot of fun reading the same books then talking about them.   I'm a true bookworm....never go anywhere without a book in my hand!
