My Favorite Childhood Books

I remember that when I was very little I ONLY wanted to at first read books that had pictures in it

But then I also remember this teacher ask me "Why don't you get another book that is a little bit more challenging?" And I was like "Because it doesn't have pictures" So she went on about how some of the greatest books don't always have pictures. She challenged me to get a book that had no pictures.

The first book I read that had no pictures was "Charley and the Chocolate Factory" I loved that book. After that I was hooked! I then got "The Wonderful Wizard of OZ"  I used to like those type of fantasy books. I also enjoyed reading mystery books such as "Nancy Drew"  I really liked those Shel Sylverstines Poem Books too.

I'm so glad that teacher challenged me to explore and read nice books.

Oh yeah... that was the best time. We could spend as much time as we liked reading easy and entertaining story-books and no one would say a thing. I still love the Wizard of Oz - it's very symbolic. And Nancy Drew is good for distracting times (like a bus journey) when you can't read anything difficult. I can finish one book in about two hours and its easy and fun!

yes! I still enjoy reading...but sadly I dont always have time to read books for fun :( I do read a lot of blogs and websites online though. And when I go to school my textbooks. But I kinda miss taking the bus and reading...Sometimes I would get so into what I was reading that would even miss my exit : O LOL I should really make more time to read....
