Random Daily Prompt: Bedtime Stories

What was your favorite book as a child? Did it influence the person you are now?

Daily Prompt: Bedtime Stories.

I have always loved books.  At the age of two I had memorized a PJ Funny Bunny book,  “It’s Not Easy Being a Bunny”, and fooled people into thinking that I was actually reading it.  I wasn’t actually reading it.  I just knew it by heart because my mother read it to me so often.  I knew when to turn the page, and I even knew which voices to use.

When I grew older I became obsessed with Nancy Drew.  I am still working on my collection (thank you e-bay) because I am missing a few and I only am interested in the yellow cover books (if you read Nancy Drew you know what I am talking about).  Those books did affect me as a person.  As soon as I picked up my first Nancy Drew book I realized two things. 1) I wanted to write, and 2) I LOVE mysteries.

The Nancy Drew books inspired my love for writing, and also for reading books that come in a series.  Now I am obsessed with collecting 1st editions of the books.  I believe I can honestly say that Nancy Drew played a part in making me who I am today.
