Aesop and a Math book. I realized that i could learn by reading HAHA.

I suppose whoever started the Berenstain Bears. As a child, my mother took me to the library each week. I didn't understand why I couldn't check them all out.

Sherlock Holmes. I fell in love with the crime solving genre and everthing. And then came Harry Potter. And mystery and magic and dragons. I couldn't come out of it then.

Roald Dahl with his short story "The Way Up to Heaven". It started my love for incredible plot twists.

It wasn't a single author. My parents bought me a roughly 100-volume series of The Hardy Boys when I was young. I burned through most of them in a spring and summer. I don't recall ever reading for pleasure before then.

I guess I would have to go back to my childhood and say that Ann M. Martin books were what I started with. Baby-sitters Club and Baby-sitters Little Sister were my first favorite books to read.

R. L. Stine. All I ever read when I was 13 were goosebumps or fearstreet. It was definitely a good time.
