Here is this week's question,
Do you remember how you developed a love for reading? Was it from a particular person, or person(s)? Do you remember any books that you read, or were read to you, as a young child? (question courtesy of Diane)
My love of reading did not develop till I was in my teens. Early teenage years were filled with
Cherry Ames books. I loved these partly because my Mum was a nurse and I could visualise her in all these adventures.
In my late teens Cherry Ames had really had a significant effect on me (lol!) as I started my own nurse training. Once on the wards, I was introduced to historical fiction by one of the other nurses and this love has grown.My reading of an odd Jean Plaidy book now encompasses many more authors including Alison Weir and Hilary Mantel.
