Well I used to love the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe series, I also read the usual little kids books such as the Wayside High series, Clue ( ), the Boxcar Children. Oh yeah, don't forget Goosebumps! That was some good kiddie horror.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe series would be a little something better known as the Chronicles of Narnia.

I loved them when I was a kid, I loved them when I was a teen and I still love them to this day. I also liked The Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle. I loved history, so anything by Ann Rinaldi was a huge favorite of mine. The BFG, Witches, James and the Giant Peach, anything else by Roald Dahl.

I could go on all night. I would, if I weren't so tired.

I read Enid Blyton cover to cover. Gave me a decent command of English.

I didn't really enjoy reading books as a kid. Still don;t. I like reading practical stuff.......

I'm starting to read abook about Nietzsche now, a modern bio of him, sort of... but I like going ot hte library these days!

AT LAST, I know where to find the things that interest me!

I liked the book "Rascal" when I was yhoung, about a raccoon.
I liked some of that guy...... darn..... the wilderness guy, the one who wrote "Hatchet" or something like that....

Um..... I sorta liked Harry Potter a while ago, but I'm young, so....

I liked grapes of wrath, in school. (well, most of it)
I don't really...... remember too much.

Like I said, I wasn't interested in books when I was young. I still am not, really. I don't like fiction. (but I do remember the outsiders..... was that the one with the greasers and what not? "stay golden"?? or was that something else. That was an. okay book, I guess).

But yeah, I like to read, just........ things that I can use......

I read all the Nancy Drew series and fell in love with the Laura Ingalls Wilder "Little House on the Prairie" set and read them all. As a teen I remember enjoying Love Story.

Anne of Green Gables series. I actually still have the series. I have very little space for book storage but I have managed to hang on to them this whole time.

I'm still a teen. I liked Catch-22 when I was 12 and 13. I like Donald Barthelme's stuff now. And as long as I live, I'll always be a fan of Dr. Suess.

Prince and the Pauper

I remember reading this as a kid and loving it. It was the same book my dad read when he was a kid. The pages were crackling and the words were poetry to me at the time

Anne kind of disappointed me when she grew up. So I just keep the first.
