Then there’s another answer. The book that sparked my love for fantasy fiction was Sword at Sunset by Rosemary Sutcliff. While still in my teens, I found an old, out-of-print copy in an antiques store in Northern California gold country and was intrigued. I read this Arthurian tale, fell in love with fantasy and never looked back.
Thinking back on that with fond memories, I began to wonder what book sparked your interest in books. Please leave a comment below — I’d love to hear your answer.
