Just a thought on my mind, as I've been in a reflective mood these past few days.

For me, it was my maternal grandmother. She got me to love fiction of all sorts, including science fiction and fantasy. I've been thinking of her a lot the past three days after her death Saturday and her getting me to want to read (well, she and my mother did) has shaped me as a reader and as a person greatly. Just curious to read who else has been an influence on you as readers.


He always, always had a giant book with him wherever we were when I grew up. We still trade books back and forth, mostly fantasy for him. :)
