And also, I had an older sister who read all the time (so bad she doesn't any more). I remember going through all of her textbooks (literature only).

And then, The Count of Monte Cristo... I guess that's what defined my taste in books. I always prefer romantic stories.

P.S.: I hated my schools' libraries. Every single one of them. The librarians were cranky. I spent my days sitting in bookstores instead.
I loved the library as a kid. During the summer they'd have a reading program where you would set a goal of how many books you were going to read over the summer holidays and at the end you got a certificate of achievement if you reached your goal. I don't know what you got if you fell short. I imagine there must have been some sort of recognition for having participated, but I never did find out if that was the case because I always went zipping right past my goal. They also had field trips to the zoo or museums or some other such activities. One time they had a trip to a theater to see a play of Treasure Island with an all female cast.
