Another member of our secret society, revealed:

What was the first piece of fiction you read that had an impact on you?

Probably “D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths” for children.

Just this weekend, I had a conversation about this book with an elementary school librarian; apparently it’s had a small resurgence thanks to the Percy Jackson books. Hurrah to that!

(If you haven’t peeked at it, The Truth About the East Wind is basically a love letter to D’Aulaire’s.)

I’ve always imagined that Omar Little read it at Tilghman Middle’s library, too.
