Okay, fair enough question.
I can not remember starting reading. I think I was reading from before it was cool. I used to read children’s books to myself at a very young age, so when I cast my mind back I can’t recall a time when I wasn’t reading.
The first adult/grown-up novel I remember reading though was a book my mother had taken out of the library called “Take Two.” I can’t even find a picture of it, or a link to let you know more. All I remember is that it was about a man who has to imitate his cousin (a Spanish terrorist I think) to… actually I don’t remember much more than that. (Except that it had swear words in it and everything.)
Not very memorable, but it does bear the distinction of being the first book I ever read from the adult section of the library. Apart from the non-fiction books about electronics and such like.
