religious propaganda books, magazines and newspapers. Then yes I would have grown up in a house over-flowing.

It's a long sad story that ended long ago so I won't go into it. But I will say that even to this day, especially when I hear how others were encouraged to read actual books, magazines and newspapers, I feel cheated. At the same time, I'm glad that others were not stunted in the way my sister and I were and that's good to hear about!

I did sneak off to the library which was just up the street when I was old enough to walk there alone. But I basically started my real love for reading when I was a young married mother and I started with Harlequin romance novels then came true crime, then some more non-fiction. I eventually developed a love for fiction, mostly mystery and their subgenre cozy mysteries, suspense and a few westerns. I still do enjoy some non-fiction occasionally.
