For many years our family did a summer reading book. The favorite of all our family was always The Count of Monte Cristo. It appeals to everyone, highlighting the triumph of good over evil yet exemplifying man’s vices.

This is the book that triggered my love of reading. I read it the summer after the fifth grade and, ever after, I was a reader.
