Poll: How Old Were You When You First Read Terry Brooks?

It’s time for a new poll!

When I was 13 years old, my mother brought home a beat-up copy of The Sword of Shannara, a recommendation from one of the girls at her work. And guess who grabbed it first?

Almost thirty years late, I still read Terry Brooks. My mother did until she passed away last year. His work has always been there — through good times and bad — and every once in a while I think back to that 13 year old and how lucky he was to have a mother that encouraged reading.

It got me thinking about all of you and your own stories. How old were you when you read your first Terry Brooks book? What book was it? Did you find it on your own or did someone recommend it to you?

Vote in the poll below and then post your own stories if you are so inclined!
