    Which book got you hooked on reading fiction?

    For me it was, The Charm School, by Neslon Demille. I remember not being able to put this book down. It was such a great book to read during the cold war. I have been hooked on reading fiction ever since.

    I read a book called, 'Nate The Great.' It was the fourth grade and it was the first time I ever read a book. The second book I ever read was when I was in the seventh grade and it was called, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.' This book was really amazing and the scope for reading mystery novels of fiction just entered my world. I went on to read the second book called, '...Chamber of Secrets' and then it just small balled downhill from there on. I read many books after that such as the Lord of the Rings series, Star Wars series and then got into Shakespeare and so on. Now I'm looking into reading a book series called 'The Bourne.' I think there is a film for it that was an adaptation from the book itself, starring Matt Damon.

    I learned later on that in the mid-late 90s, a huge number of reading books was lacking far well beyond anything and the first time I picked a book and started reading was a blessing because later on, I found a career in writing books for children and teens.

    The thing that is important everyone in the world is that you learn and educate yourself through reading and its very crucial to success as a someone that is growing up and becoming adults one day.

    Ever since I've read these books, I've been working on a fiction novel series of my own and hope to publish it one day as my number one goal.

    This is why I have been hooked on reading and writing fiction ever since.

    When I was a girl, 2nd grade I think, our teacher read Wizard of Oz to us every afternoon. I was hooked.  My mom bought me the book and I read it like I was addicted.

    My dad bought me The Hobbit when I was in fifth grade and I couldn't stop reading it the moment I started. After that, going to the bookstore to buy me a book or two became a pretty regular thing for us. I've been hooked on fiction ever since.

    I read Alice In Wonderland at least four times when I was quite young.  I enjoyed the imagination, the unique charaters, and the story setting.  It also has some great life lessons (philosophy, social relationships) within the book that are useful.

    I loved both "The Little Princess" and "The Secret Garden." Both are by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

    I'm an avid James Patterson fan. His first Alex Cross novel, "Along Came A Spider" got me hooked into reading fiction. I was seventeen then and I've been a fan of Patterson and the mystery/thriller genre ever since.
