And you?

Hello there. We had our thunderstorm last night, and now it's sunny but windy. Okay, so let's move on to more important things. What was your favorite book growing up and why? I loved The Golden Key by George MacDonald, but Alice in Wonderland came in a close second. Of course, there were so many other books that I loved and read over and over again, but those are my two faves.

Also, what was the first poster you stuck on your wall? I hate to admit it, but my sister and I had a Rick Springfield poster on our wall.

Now, your turn!


  1. There was a series of horror books by Pan publications, which I loved as a kid. Also, anything by Edgar Allen poe was good - the great American gothic man. I was a morbid child.

    I didn't have posters on my wall, I had real swords, crossed in a heraldic, gothic sort of way. Like I say, I was a morbid child.

  2. Depends on how old a kid you are talking about...I had Black Beauty and all the Nancy Drew books ... no posters.

  3. I loved mystery books as a kid. My favorites were the Abby Jones mystery series by Patricia Reilly Giff, as well as the Babysitter's Club Mystery spinoff series.

    I think my first poster was a Backstreet Boys one.

  4. I can't remember the name of the book but the character's name was Heather. I had never heard that name before as it was not in vogue in those days. I was only 12 yrs. old and right then and there I decided that would be the name of my first daughter. 13 yrs. later I had my very own Heather, although that year there was a boom in girls being named Heather. It must have been that many girls my age must have all read the same book.

    The Beatles.

  5. Swallows and Amazons. No posters.

  6. The "Freddy The Pig" series. No posters.

  7. Don't know so much about 'read'.

    I used to have a bookshelf full of 'Charlie Brown' books - more of a graphics book really.

    Same with the Florence Parry Heide books like 'The Shrinking of Treehorn' with it's eerie illustrations.

    Tove Jansson's Moomins too, again a bit odd in a way.

    First poster was of Cheryl Ladd in a gold leotard!

  8. I used to love the Enid Blyton books especially the 'Five' adventures up to the age of ten. Can't remember what I read after that.
