I was at a YA Librarian day a few weeks back and Teri Lesesne spoke about having everyone in her class create a reading history. It sounded like fun, so I thought I'd give it a try.
I've always been a reader, everyone in my family reads. I have vague memories of going to the library and getting lots of books out as a kid. Libraries have also been a part of me forever.
A few favorite library books:

This book made me laugh - every single time.
I learned to read early in life, thanks for my older sister who would go to school and teach me what she learned. I could read before entering kindergarten.
In first grade, we had Silent Reading. While some students would grab one or two books from the classroom library, I would grab ten to fifteen books and read the stack during the twenty minutes.
This was my favorite book in the classroom library
In school, I loved going to the library. I read several of the Betsy books. They spoke to me. My sister's nickname was Betsey and Star and I had the same birthday. I devoured these. They were my first series.
I became a serial reader and still am to this day.
