I won’t go back to the FIRST first book, but since you’re listening to A WRINKLE IN TIME, I will say that that was a watershed book for me. I got it from the Scholastic book order in 6th grade. It cost 95 cents. (I won’t tell the year I was in 6th grade; that price ought to say enough!) It was the longest, hardest book I had read up to that point. It was the first book I’d read that made me really THINK. It was my first science fiction book.
