Do you remember the first book you bought for yourself? Or the first book you checked out of the library? What was it and why did you choose it?
I don’t remember a lot of my childhood or teen years, due to traumatic experiences and suppression to deal with a lot that happened and that disappoints me a lot when I think about it. I do remember buying a few books for myself when I was in primary school, but in in high school I tended to borrow books from my local and school library.
There was a few books in my memory. Disney novels & Margaret Clark novels. Then I remember as I got older and started exploring my sexuality that I borrowed a few books out on transgender and lesbians issues- both fiction and non-fiction. One of my favorite books was Rainbow High by Alex Sanchez [ It was about Gay young Adults] I would love to read those books again.
But the first books I can remember buying with my own money was a few Dark Series novels by Christine Feehan and Black Dagger Brotherhood novels by J.R. Ward. Those were adult novels and as I was beginning to want more intensity in my reading. We also had hardly any books in the house and I was tired of the slim picking in the library.
