Do you remember the first book you bought for yourself? Or the first book you checked out of the library? What was it and why did you choose it?
No. However, I’m fairly certain it was one of these: a horse book which I devoured at the time, an Enid Blyton, or Nancy Drew book.
However, I remember the first English language book I bought for myself. It was a Forgotten Realms fantasy book: Darkwalker on Moonshae by Douglas Niles.
