What kind of reading do you still do today that began in childhood?

Asked by mazingerz88 (22176points) September 18th, 2018 from iPhone

I’ve read comic books on and off since childhood. Still read novels, mostly fiction, horror and murder-mystery. And it will continue until I’m gone.

Science Fiction and murder mysteries. I read lots of novels, but I maintain a passion for those two.

Mysteries. My brother bought me Hitchcock books when I was in grade school and I still love them.

Action and adventure. I got the book Look Out For Pirates for my 6 year old grand daughter who is developing a passion for reading. When I was in elementary school I checked that book out every other week!
Now it’s Sacajawea and the like.

Everything that I read now.

Grew up raiding my older sibling’s book shelves. Older brother had a pretty extensive comic book collection. Older sister would read classic novels to me for bedtime stories.

Nothing like some Edgar Allen Poe to put a little kid to sleep.~

^Or to scare the bejesus out of a kid like The Tell Tale Heart.

Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”
Gives me chills just reading those words and I don’t even remember what the poem was about!

Reading as a kid could lead to strange activities. Like me reading Amityville Horror at the side of the road in daytime.

^^^^^ Yes. I spent a great deal of time trying to dig a house into the side of a hill on our property after reading Little House on the Prairie.
