I've Always Enjoyed Mysteries and Still Do!

 When I was a kid, my brothers were reading Hardy Boys mysteries. Not me. Oh, I did get around to reading them eventually. But I started out with another series by the same author, although she was apparently using separate pennames for each series she wrote. I'm a twin and always been proud (and fascinated) of that. So, when I stumbled across the Bobsey Twins books, I just had to read them. They are the ones with the purple covers, about a family of six kids, three sets of twins. (Hardy Boys were blue, and Nancy Drew books were yellow.) I read every one as they came out. Just as my brothers were anxiously waiting for the next in the Hardy Boys series, I was the same way with the Bobsey Twins books. And I still like reading murder/crime mysteries.

Trixie Belden series had me hooked.<br />
Also Flat Stanley. I dont recall who wrote it, but i remember the story so well. We all wanted to be squished flat for the summer after that one!!

When i was younger, i used to enjoy reading the Enid Blyton books, ie; ''The Famous Five' ''The Secret Severn'''. Now i am older i enjoy reading true ''ghost tales, anything on the supernatural. Elliott O'Donnell, and Peter Underwood being personal favourites.

When Harry Potter first came out I was not impressed. Mainly because of the hype.<br />

I'd go, "You go ahead and be crazy about it. Not me, I'm not going to."<br />

It was when I ended up having absolutely nothing to read while staying at a cousin's place that I reluctantly reached for a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Haven't looked back since :)
