I imagine that the oldest book I have from my childhood—though it is currently boxed up in storage because I live in an apartment and move a fair amount—are the pile of Nancy Drew books I inherited from my mother. She’d read them when she was young and, since I’ve always been in love with reading, the moment I found them packed away in her old room at my grandparents’ house, I had to have them.
I was in first grade at the time, going into second grade and spent a ridiculous amount of time powering through the series. Naturally there’s no real chance that I would ever give these books up. It’s something I’d love to see get passed down since it’s already made it through two generations.
I’ve already reached the 24 hour mark for this Readathon, amazingly enough! After dedicating literally all of yesterday to reading and having a nice long sleep last night, I’m bright and thrilled. Still reading, of course, just to see where I’ll get to, but I don’t expect to be reading as hardcore as I was yesterday.
How is your readalong going? I wish you all luck in reaching the 24 hour mark!
