I remember it clearly . it was what I called a "real' book (in the 4th grade)1978 I was 9 , and I read " Otherwise known as Sheila the Great " I continued reading Judy Blume and a few others. then I found "Flowers in The Attic" when I was sixteen or seven teen, from there I started with John Saul and moved on to Steven King (IT was first for me) seeing these covers really takes me back, please post your first books and the pictures. let us walk down memory land. post stuff like "where the wild things are " or 'Goodnight Moon , if you like.
