As a child I was very much into Roald Dahl's books, The B.F.G was a favourite, the Star Trek novels featured, I actually read a lot of Tom Clancy/John Grisham/Patricia Cornwell around the 12 - 16 age time in my life. Though I would always be interested in reference books about ships and naval history as a child.

I don't think I "had" to read anything - I love to read!

No, wait, I HAD to read Jude the Obscure, and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Pfui.
