Birth Month Day 3: B is for Books and Day 2 Recap
Welcome to Day 3...B is for Books!
Growing up an only child of book loving parents gave me a strong, intense love for books. One of my favorite things to do with my parents was to go to the mall on Friday nights and head straight for the book store. We would all separate and look for books. They would always find me surrounded by the stacks of books I NEEDED. I felt the same about the library. It was always a place full of magic and wonder. I would leave with STACKS of books on anything and everything. I could sit for hours playing in the card catalog. (Many of you may be too young to know what that it lol) I wanted to take this evening to share some of my favorite books and characters...or as I like to call them, friends, with you. Hope you remember some :)
Books I loved as a kid....
|Roald Dahl is still one of my all time favorite authors. I have read the Charlie books HUNDREDS of times. James and the Giant Peach and the Twits were close seconds. His writing was so intelligent and fun...never felt like they were kids books.|
|Ramona Quimby somehow understood me. She was quirky, awkward and always in trouble. Like me.|
|One of my all time favorite series. My mom would read them to me before I was able to read. Then I read them myself. My set looked just like this...a score from a yard sale. I was thrifty even as a child.|
|My daughter's name actually came from this book! Of course, it's a boys name in here, but who cares. Charlotte taught me how to be kind and caring and I will always cry at the end.|
|I started this series with Book #1 when it first hit book stores. I was a faithful reader for years.|
|Judy Blume was one of my favorite authors and this was my favorite of her books. I learned about Jewish culture and life in the 1950's.|
|Trixie was one of my mom's favorites and she passed them on to me. The writing is old school, but great. I learned that dungarees are what they used to call jeans.|
