    In kind of chronological order...

    @Glorianna: I always did the book fairs at school -- not just getting books from the Weekly Reader / Scholastic fliers but also attending the actual fairs, walking around picking out books.

    I also go to the public local library and bring home a literal brown shopping bag full of books weekly, and get a new bag the next trip.... along with attending the book camps there in the summer.


    I was into lots of books when I was growing up. Some of my faves:

    • Dr. Seuss books (especially "I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew").
    • Encyclopedia Brown mysteries
    • Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew
    • Dummer Hoff
    • The Bible (KJV, then NIV)
    • Amos and Boris (by William Steig) -- definitely a big fave
    • The Great Brain series (John Dennis Fitzgerald)
    • "Alvin Fernald" books by Clifford B. Hicks
    • Charlotte's Web
    • Anything written/illustrated by Mercer Mayer
    • Roald Dahl books
    • The Cricket in Times Square
    • Shel Silverstein books/poetry
    • Shane (by Jack Shaefer)
    • The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings/ Silmarillion (Tolkien)
    • Chronicles of Narnia (Lewis)
    • A Wrinkle in Time and others by Madeleine L'Engle
    • The Earthsea books (LeGuin)
    • "The Dark is Rising" series (Susan Cooper)
    • The initial Shannara books ("Elfstones" is my fave)
    • Where the Wild Things Are
    • The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant 1 & 2 (Donaldson)
    • Stephen King
    • The Chronicles of Amber (Zelazny)
    • Comic books (X-Men, Spiderman)
    • Mythadventures series
    • Edgar Allen Poe
    • Harlan Ellison
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I loved the world atlas, but only on a PC. I only liked it for maps/flags and hearing all of the ways to say 'hello'.

    - Choose Your Own Adventure books
    - Fighting Fantasy series (by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingston)
    - Sorcery! (4-part series by Steve Jackson)

    Those ones, I ran into (and read many/all of them) because my kids were reading them. (I immensely liked the art for both as well.) Others that I liked, text and art:

    Captain Underpants series
    Rumplestiltskin's Daughter
    Harry Potter (although I've only read two books)
    The Golden Compass series (although I didn't like the end as much)

    Actually Fighting Fantasy (I have almost all of them) only have one ending. They have several paths to said ending though.

    I bought a number of them, all first edition -- any time I saw a new one, I had bought it. I might still have them in a box somewhere -- probably the first 20-25 that came out. Then I went to college and I stopped. I still have my original Sorcery! set.
