I have read a lot of books. However, in terms of reading for pleasure I would say the Nancy Drew series are my first sets of books. I do not remember the first title that I have read though.

The first book I remember reading was the iconic Three Little Pigs! Is always the first book I reach for when tutoring and reading to little kids.

My first book was The Secret Seven. I fell in love with reading books after reading it.

A book of Bible stories. Much of the biblical stories I remember were from it and not from the actual thing. It was mostly textbooks in school after that, until I discovered A Wrinkle in Time.

The first book I remember reading was The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It might have been The Runaway Bunny though. Those were two of my favorite children's books which were like this book in that they were picture books featuring animals (although there were no humans in either book).

We had many versions of Grimm's Fairytales and I remember reading those. Luckily I started with adapted versions, so most of the horror and gore was taken out. :)

I don't know exactly which one it was, nor do I remember the incident in question, but I was a precocious child and my mother taught me to read well before I went to school. On my first day at primary school, she told the teacher I could already read and the teacher tried to get me to read a 'Peter and Jane' picture book. I rolled my eyes at her, and she told me to choose a book from the shelf and read that instead.
Apparently, I selected one of Enid Blyton's Famous Five books and read the whole first chapter aloud, without mistakes. I was four.
My son's preschool teachers seriously told me my child was a genius because he was reading the hardest books they had available... He was 3. He pretty much taught himself. I just read to him a lot.

Apart from textbooks, I don't think I have read other books when I was young. I guess I started reading real novels around junior high, starting off with some of Agatha Christie's works; and eventually, the Harry Potter series.
