Top Ten Tuesday (8)

This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks question is

Top Ten Best Bookish Memories (waiting in line for a new release, meeting an author, or some sort of great experience with a particular book that was unlike others)

     This was a really hard question, because aside from going out and getting books from the library or the bookstore there isn't a specif memory of books. I have never been at a book signing, author's just don't go to my state for some reason. And I've never stood in line for a new release. So, this question was hard and I only came up with 5.

1. Reading my Laura Ingalls books.
I got a box set of the first five books for Christmas when I was 5. They where the first books I ever remember reading. I remember one time I wanted to read as fast as my mom, so I would count how many pages I read in a day. One night right before bed I was counting how many pages I read in the first Laura Ingalls books and it was 25 pages. I was so proud of myself. Now I could read 200 pages if I wanted.
 2. When I got my Nancy Drew books.
This was another Christmas present, I think I was 8 and I got a box with the first 10 Nancy Drew books in it. After that I tried to get the whole series. I didn't really accomplish that, but I came close.

3. Twilight.
The Twilight series was the books that got me into reading YA. I love them and they were the first books that I would set and read for hours straight. Before that I would just read a few chapters then go do something else.

4. The Magic Tree House series.
I remember going to the library and the had a whole shelf full of these books. I would set there looking at everyone and decide which one I want to check out.

5. Bethany Wiggins.
One of my very first followers was Bethany Wiggins author of one of my favorite books Shifting. I don't know how she found me, but when I saw that she subscribed to my blog I may or may not have squealed my head off.

That's my answer, what yours?
Happy reading
