It's Feature and Follow Friday again!! It is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read.
Question of the Week: What is the first book you remember reading.
Oh wow... now that's a tough question. I remember when I was about 6 years old looking over my mother's meager bookcase and picking up Heidi by Johanna Spyri/Angelo Rinaldi... it's a classic I think. I read a few chapters but I was still too young really.
So let's fast forward a bit to the first book I actually remember reading all the way through. That would have been a school assigned summer reading book. It was The Light in the Forest by Conrad Richter and it was about a small boy who is captured by Native American Indians in a raid in Pennsylvania. I remember that I really loved the book. It too is a classic. I really like the fact that I started with a classic. Where all my classmates hated assigned reading, I loved it.
Case in point, when I was in high school we were assigned to read The Agony and the Ecstasy by Irving Stone, which is the story of how Michaelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel. Everyone else puffed and groaned their way through it and I ate up every beautiful word. They made a wonderful movie based on it with Charleton Heston playing the lead... amazing movie.
