I still have the very first science fiction book I ever read. Not just a copy of it, but the very same copy that was bought for me in either first or second grade. Here it is: The book actually consists of two stories. If you flip the book over, the other story reads in the other direction, so that when you come to the last page of either side you are confronted with the last page of the other story upside down. I don't know if they still do this in grade school, but back in the seventies they sold these little "scholastic books" through the school via a little mail order deal-ee-oh. I remember each year I would wait with such anticipation for the little pamphlet to come out to see which new books I could buy. They rarely cost more than a buck in those days. Anyway, this little science fiction ditty was my very first ever science fiction book, my baptism, so to speak. What was your first book?
