I loved reading starting at a very young age. In Cincinnati, Ohio where I grew up, the local library was always a fun destination for me. My mother would take my two sisters and me and I loved the fiction section. Each summer the Mt Washington branch of the Cincinnati Public Library held a summer reading program where you would get rewarded and recognized for reading. I participated every summer as a child. I loved having access to all those great stories and routinely read 30 plus books in a summer. It was a treasure hunt every time I selected a book and I will always appreciate having had that little library branch a few blocks from where I lived.
