What turned you into a reader?

For me it was a coloring book with pictures of the Roman gods and goddesses that I picked up at my local grocery store. I fell in love with their exotic names and the beautiful faces. Once I finished coloring every picture, my grandmother said, “You know, you can read books about all those characters.” That was it. I went to the library and within a year I had read every myth at the Arden Hills branch of the Ramsey County Library.
