As a boy I read every Hardy Boys book I could find. I loved the intrigue and mystery of that series. When I was young, my father used to read me Call of the Wild and I would imagine living in the wilds of the north. My grandfather used his love of reading to entrance my brothers and me with with extemporary stories of bears and Indians. —Joe Daues
