Feature & Follow Friday... and I'M a feature! woot!

I am thrilled and honored to be this weeks featured blog on: 

Feature and Follow is a weekly meme hosted 
by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.

I mean SERIOUSLY!! Could there be anything better for a bunny in the world than a blogHOP???

This weeks question, suggested by:
is a real brain teaser for me! 
 1) because i'm old as dirt and that's a long way back to thinking
 2) because I actually remember SO MANY!!

I mean I can totally remember reading this...
My First Counting Book

But for an ACTUAL reading book, one of the first I'd have to say was:
Little House in the Big Woods
I was given the boxed set as a gift. I still remember the fun of running on the prairie, of Pa going out in the blizzard, of any visit by Mr. Edwards...especially at Christmas. This book was my first experience in literary travel, where I felt like I actually WENT somewhere else, and some TIME else! 

I followed this closely by:
Little Women
Another gift. This is the actual set I found under the Christmas tree that year (no I"m not saying WHAT year, NO! they weren't new releases!! Don't get cheeky!)

I logically followed these up with other such reading as Edgar Allen Poe, followed closely by Stephen King.

No matter the genre, these books set up my love of reading!! 

How about you? How far back can you bend that memory? What book do you find when you reach way, way back??

Let us know and link up!

  10. Hi, there!

    CONGRATS on being a featured blog this week!!

    Aw.....that first book is so cute! I can't remember that far myself. So I went with something I DO remember reading when I was around 8 or 9.

    I've never heard of "Little House in the Big Woods", but it looks good! And OOOOH, "Little Women"!! I LOVE that book!! I DID read that one! I was a tomboy at the time, and related strongly to Jo. I wanted to be just like her!! I think I read that book a couple of times at least, back in the day.

    Thanks so much for sharing!! HAPPY FRIDAY!! : )

  11. I was obsessed with Little House on the Prairie for awhile! I read all of them and went on to read the later series of her daughter and grand-daughter too!

    I really enjoyed reading Little Women too. I think I'm going to reread it at some point as I haven't read it since I was young.
