5. I read whatever I could get my hands on ...

but when it came to newspapers/magazines, we were out in the rural area, so you had, essentially, two newspapers - 1st was the daily, which eventually was bought out by Scaife (Valley News Dispatch), and on Sunday you got the Pittsburgh Press.

Found in the basement some older books, including one that introduced me to Norse mythology (and other stories) ... the tale of Thor and Loki getting lost, and having to face challenges from some "hosts". Rather interesting.

But the library was about 5 miles away, so that was a luxury.
