What are your first/most formative memories of reading and encountering books? Was it in a library, a bookshop, or exploring the bookshelves at home? You can send me entries by email (edward@edwardpicot.com) or post them as comments to a special page I've set up on my blog: http://edwardpicot.com/blog/first-experiences-of-reading/.
