Sounds like a fun blogfest. Does that mean the first adult book ever? Because that was a loooonggg time ago for me. There is no way I would remember that.

Sylvia Ney said...

Susan - I think you can get away with the first one you remember, ;-)

First adult book I can remember? Will Durant's The Story of Philosophy.
Somehow, though, I think this blogfest has to do with fiction, as opposed to non-fiction. Bear reads so little fiction that he can't remember the first, or last.

This sounds like a fun one, though I can't remember for the life of me what my first adult book is. I do remember the one that made an impression however...The Outlander Series. I have never looked at a man in a kilt the same after them:)

The Story of O was my first adult book. Now it would be called erotic. Back then it was way beyond naughty.

My first one was pretty tame compared to some others, but it did lead to a lifelong interest.

I read "The Thorn Birds" when I was in junior high. Fairly tame for today's standards, but very impressionable for a 14 year old!
