|Cover I remember!|
|Loved these covers.|
|Only one of my favourites!|
I was like that as a kid - taking out a bagful of books. I read most of them too. I also did a lot of rereading. From my elementary school days I remember taking out Freaky Friday, every Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary books they owned multiple times. Picking up any of those books now brings back good memories. (and sometimes bad ones but usually reading a book would take me away from the horrible stuff) I remember when I discovered John Bellairs and had to get every book I could...(sorry lost in thought for a moment). I think that is one of the reasons I still enjoy reading children's books - especially if that author is still writing. Last year I saw a new book by Mary Downing Hahn - who was one of my favourite authors as she wrote suspense, horror, historical, and contemporary fiction- Took and I HAD to try it....she still has it...that magic that transforms it's reader no matter the age to another time and place.
As part of this feature I may reread some of my favourite books and authors as a kid and write a review of why I first picked it up and how it holds up years (decades) later!
