I love to read. This wasn't always the case, but I really came into my own when I read, the now controversial book, Tom Sawyer on my own in the 5th grade. I immediately feel in love with the story and I couldn't wait to read about Huckleberry Finn, which I ended up liking more than Tom Sawyer. If you've read these classics, then you know that they can be a difficult read because Mark Twain didn't use proper grammar, he wrote the way people spoke. They were difficult reads, but I powered through them and these two books gave me an appetite for adventure books. I've read countless books about adventure and I've loved them all.
*People argue all the time - at least Lewis fans - about what order to read The Chronicles of Narnia. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was published first but The Magician's Nephew is chronologically the first. My opinion.... who cares! Just read the set.
