What Book Got You Hooked On Reading?

What Book Got You Hooked On Reading?: there’s a list here of books that were the most effective at getting young people reading. Anne of Green Gables makes the list, as do Nancy Drew books and Goodnight, Moon.

I don’t think any particular book got me hooked–I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t reading.

    Interesting list of children’s books, but it seems to be dated. My current students, and own child, are hooked on Junie B. Jones, Magic Treehouse, and, or course, Harry Potter.

    Yes, I agree. I guess this says a lot about the age of the people who responded.

    I dont think I can narrow it down to just one book that got me hooked on reading. But when I was really little my mom used to read to me from the golden book collection. When I got a little older I read sweet valley kids and r.l stine and christopher pike. I do believe I managed to read most of the series before i out grew them.

    I know a lot of people loved those books; authors like that deserve a special kind of medal.
