Book Blogger Hop - 5/25 - 5/31

Question of the Week:

Do you remember the first book you read by yourself? (submitted by La La @ La La in the Library)

My Answer:

Oooooo....making me go way back and having me not remember. LOL!!

Great question, but I honestly do not remember.

I know I read all the Nancy Drew books, but I am sure I had to have read something way before that time.


  1. Yeah I can't really remember what book I read by myself for the first time. It's got to be a storybook of some kind!

    1. Thinking about it, it had to be something from first grade. Dick and Jane for me. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Jessica.

  2. It's such a big question, I'm surprised when people are actually able to remember their first independent reading experience.

    I know a lot of people who are fans of the Nancy Drew books, but I never got around to reading them myself. Good answer!

    Feel free to check out my own answer if you wish (with some puppy pictures!)

    1. It is amazing to remember.

      I read every Nancy Drew book, but I don't think they were my first books. Thanks for the memory.

      A bit tricky to have to think back to about 50+ years ago. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Nicki.

  4. I read Nancy Drew too as a kid! I feel like with me being a reader, I should remember the first book I've ever read by myself. However, I don't remember specifically the first book I've ever read on my own, without my parents reading to me. I do remember reading many book series like Baby-Sitters Club, Boxcar Children, Nancy Drew, Animorphs, and the first Harry Potter book, as a child, and those books fueled me to read more on my own. My BBH -

    1. I LOVED The Boxcar Children.

      Thank you for commenting, Dani.

  5. I loved Nancy Drew! I read all the ones I could my hands on so many times. I don't really remember the first book I read on my own either. I do wish I did.

    1. Mom would take us to the library and we would get as many Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books we were allowed to take out. :)
