What's the first book you read? By this I don't mean a children's book as a kid or something you had to read for school. What I want to talk about is the first book you ever went out and bought with money you saved up because you wanted to read it. And why that book?


For me it was Private Parts by Howard Stern. I was in high school and watched Stern on the E! show at night and had become a big fan. I had already seen the movie several times and loved it. I wasn't a reader at the time but saved up some money from working a minimum wage job and went out to Barnes and Noble one night to get the book. Got away from the TV (not Howard) and video games for a few nights and locked myself in my room to read the book.
