Me too Eira - I don't actually remember learning to read, but I do remember reading my Grandad's Revielle, any newspaper I could get my hands on and at least 4 library books a week.

The librarian let me loose on the adult section of the library when I was 11, and being a logical but contrary child I read them alphabetically, by author.................backwards.

Zelazny, H.G. Wells, John Wyndham.....................you get the drift. A few years later I got to Azimov via Arthur Clarke.wink.png

I loved sci-fi, still do.

Woolworth's used to sell classic books for 2s.6d. I bought one every week. Wuthering Heights, Dickens etc., etc. Like you I didn't always understand every word I read, but plodded on regardless.

When I was just starting to read well, I had a collection of Dr. Seuss books, which I adored!

The list would be really long but the ones that are cemented in my memories are Famous Five, Secret Seven, Black Beauty, Gullivers Travels, Huckleberry Finn, Little Women, Little Men and all the different fairy books. Of course Grimms fairy tales and Hans Christian Andersen.

I read some Jules Verne as a child in upper primary which set me up for a love of science fiction and fantasy, and got me into the "pulp" magazine stories of the time.. I also read an abridged or adapted version of Melville's Moby Dick which captivated me...
