    As a child, I was a great fan of Roald Dahl, especially Matilda, which I've five times. CS Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia were another group of books I was obsessed with.

    I think I still have them too -- by John Christopher... a spin on "War of the Worlds" with the tentacles tripod monsters. That was a cool yarn, esp Beanpole.

    Hmm... I'll keep it from age 14 and younger

    Anything by Madeline L'Engle
    Anything by Anne McCaffrey
    The Dark is Rising sequence by Susan Cooper
    Several books by Lloyd Alexander
    The Hero and the Crown and The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley
    Dicey's Song and other books by Cynthia Voigt
    Anne of Green Gables series
    JRR Tolkien (I believe I'd only personally read The Hobbit prior to high school, but my father had read all of the LOTR books to my brother and I as children)

    I also tended to hone in on Newbery Medal books as a general rule. I read a LOT. The above are just some favorites that I'm recalling.

    Yeah... d'ya think I was primarily interested in Fantasy books?

    I never had any of the Sorcery ones I don't think.My fantasy world was heavily influences by Fighting Fantasy though. I still see the pictures inside my head and get warm fuzzy feelings when imagining it all lol

    I also didn't finish most of the books. I just wanted to get a feel for the world mythos and then have adventures inside my head.

    Harry Potter (although I've only read two books)
    The Golden Compass series (although I didn't like the end as much)
    Man, I can't believe I forgot Captain Underpants!
    I loved those books.

    Your kids have nice taste

    I remember trying to get into HP, but it never clicked well with me. It's odd, I enjoy the theme and learning *about* it, I just don't really enjoy how it all plays out. IOW, I guess I prefer the world and the work she put into it over the stories.

    With HP, it's been weird -- when I'm reading, I like the story. I think she's talented, she can pull people in, it's enjoyable to read. I just can't seem to really focus on the book too long; I lose steam and find myself indifferent to finishing.

    My eldest read all of them... and quickly.
    At least I beat him on aSoUE, though.

    This one was my favorite, by far!



    Still love it.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.
