The books that made Library staff readers

We all probably remember the first book(s) that made us into readers. For many it might be a single memorable book that made us fall in love with reading and made it a life-long habit. We recently asked the Library staff what book made them a reader.


Here are the Library staff responses to the book that make them a reader:

“There was no one book, there were always books around when I was little, and I was read to often.”

Jurassic Park

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey”

The Vegetable Thieves by Inga Moore”

Flowers in the Attic by V. C. Andrews”

“My first Dick and Jane, I think. I was hooked from the moment I learned to read.”

The Maias by Eça de Queirós”

The Walking Dead

“As a young adult, I was mesmerized by the fantasy worlds in Juniper and Wise Child by Monica Furlong.”

“My parents bought this ‘classics’ set for us, which included Black Beauty, Little Women, and Treasure Island, and they remained the few books in English in our house for a long time.”

“I stopped reading for a period of time, and the book that made me a reader again was All The Bright Places.”
