I started when I was four. My first book was "Hooper Humperdink, Not Him!" and I read it so much the cover fell off! :lol:

I started reading at about age four with some book that said stuff like 'the cat was on the mat' and 'the rat is fat.' I had this thing that if I said a whole page correctly (which was like two sentences), I got a hershey kiss. :)

So, I learned to read when I was like three and the first book I read was Hansel and Grethel when I was five years old. After I read that one, I just couldn't stop.

I think I was 4 when I started reading. I don't remember the book though. Actually, I don't remember a lot of things from when I was younger. Everything below 10 years is a blur to me.

I learned when I was 7 (in my time it was the basic age to start schooling) but my first "big" book was at 8. It was "White Fang" ^_^ And at 9 I started writing.
