I have always loved to read. When I was in middle school I started reading R.L. Stein's Fear Street series and eventually my dad(who has been a constant reader longer than I've been alive) introduced me to Stephen King. The first book that he lent me to read was The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon. Since then I've been reading S.K. almost nonstop. About two years ago even my grandfather started reading S.K.(I guess technically that makes me a third generation constant reader even though I was before him) with the Dark Towerseries. I want to know which was first for you. Which book(or story) did you cut your teeth on? Which was the first to make you afraid of the things that go bump in the night?
