Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Honestly, I don't consciously recall the first story I ever read! But according to my mother, I was carrying around one of those Little Golden Books when I was three years old and had memorized every word in it. It was Mickey Mouse's Picnic, and I do recall being really fond of the pictures in that story!
In elementary school, my friends and I were all obsessed with reading ghost stories like the Scary Stories Series, and more lighthearted books like Judy Blume's Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and Superfudge. In specific, I've always loved Judy Blume's books. In the 10th grade, years after the popularity of her tales for the younger audiences had faded, I'd been out of school sick for a few days, and on my return, my English teacher took me to a book bin in her classroom and told me to pick one of the remaining books to do a report on. The other students had already chosen while I was out, so there wasn't much left that drew my interest--except for Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume.
I'd seen this book before, and always wanted to read it, so my choice was a no-brainer. I got the book, took it home with me, proceeded to read it for my report, and I was glad I did. I hadn't forgotten my earlier intrigues with her stories, but going from her children's books to reading one for young adults really opened my eyes to just how diverse the works of an author can be. There's no reason to set limitations, and you can write any world you can imagine, from more innocent, fun loving stories to emotionally gripping dramatic thrillers, and I was hooked. By that point in my life, I already knew I'd love to become an author, but reading that story really helped to cement the idea in my mind.
Now that I think about it, I should probably try to find my tenth grade English teacher and thank her for doing that!
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a Kindle e-reader, and I'm not sure I'd call it my 'device of choice', but it's easy to use and I enjoy being able to have so many books in one place!
