Before I graduated High School the only things I read of my own accord were comics, newspaper and magazines. I cringed when forced to read anything in school. Shortly after I graduated I picked up The Exorcist and haven't stopped reading since.
So to coin Flip Wilson's phrase, "The devil made you do it"?

Seems safe to say. I didn't stay with horror after The Exorcist, just grabbed up whatever was around.

You know you're getting old when you don't have to google Flip Wilson.

Oh geez, I'd probably have to go all the way back to something like Sideways Stories from Wayside School and the Danny Dunn series.

What made me love the art of writing and storytelling was being exposed to An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge in high school. It blew my mind.

I remember Danny Dunn. There were a number of books about him and his adv. with Prof. Bullfinch I believe. Good reading as a kid. Along with Encyclopedia Brown.

Guilty. Celebrated bday 42 last Dec. Yep a child of the 70's. Things certainly have changed since then. I'm just barely older than PG.

Books were always around and I could read by the time I was four. But the light went on with E.B. White (Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, The Trumpet of the Swan). That's when I realized, in first or second grade, that magic was possible.

Robert Graves, author of The White Goddess, postulated that the "secret wisdom of the Druids" was the knowledge of reading and writing.

On the other hand, as an anthropologist, Graves was a great poet.

I guess it must have been White Fangs by Jack London, after that I decided that books, at least some books were for me

White Fang.

White Fangs makes it sound like he wrote the first sparkly vampire novel.

The first book which I remember having a huge impact on me, and how I viewed the world, was "The Silver Sword" by Ian Serraillier. I think I may have been 8 or 9 when I read it. There had been many books before that, but that was *the* one.

It's a toss up between Cinderella and the Br'er Rabbit books (Enid Blyton).

Funnily enough, in grade school I devoured literary fare (Little Women, Shakespeare, etc) and encyclopedias (favorite subject matter being dinosaurs, Greek and Roman mythology, and the solar system/stars/universe). If I was bored enough, I'd even read the dictionary. Nowadays, my reading material appears to be limited to trashy romance novels.

lol, yeah I guess you're right. I did not remember that detail and I just went with logic, dogs having more than one fang ...
But White Fang is the title indeed. I read it a long time ago though.
