How did you find your way to reading literary fiction and nonfiction?


I found myself reading more literary fiction by the fact that the school I attended in Grade 7 didn’t have much in the way of my favourite series, The Babysitters Club, available to sign out.  I had been reading the series for the better part of two or three years and when I started at my school that fall there wasn’t much choice in the library to sign out at first.  There wasn’t anything I was reading and then I signed out Jacob Have I Loved that September, I was able to change my reading habits drastically.  Also I was unable to find anything in my local library at the time because at that time asking for a loan was quite difficult, without having to ask the library staff to see if they could get a book for me.  As a result, I was forced read more difficult things.  And by the time I went to high school in Grade 8, the transition wasn’t too hard and I was able to read more difficult things and was able to understand them.
