    Childhood Stories

    What books do you remember reading as a kid? I read "The chronicles of Narnia" when I was 13. Then LOTR when I was 14.

    Charlotte's Web
    One of the Wizard Of Oz Books

    I always enjoyed reading the "Mr." and "Little Miss" series of books by Roger Hargreaves when I was a child. I also enjoyed reading the "Encyclopedia Brown" mysteries by Roald Dahl.

    I was into mystery books like The Hardy Boys, Alfred Hitchcock's Three Investigators and The Secret Seven.

    I loved "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe" and also all of Williard Price's Adventure books. (About two teenaged boys who go on adventures capturing wild animals for their father's zoo (Very educational too))

    I guess my favourite book as a child had to be "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". I read that so many times!

    C.S. Lewis' Narnia series, Hardy Boys and all the classics from Jules Verne to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

    I always loved reading, so I had a childhood full of books. I wonder if any children really read as much as kids did a few decades back.

    It makes you wonder these days doesn't it Flix? I think it's becoming a bit of a lost art with television and computers taking everyone's attentions. My kids are always on their computer.

    My faves were the Chronicles of Narnia. Still love those. Also read Judy Blume books, Nancy Drew, the Bobsey Twins. Loved mystery books growing up. Also enjoyed Wrinkle in Time. Just reread that one about a month ago. Still good.

    I read the Box Car Children and the Baby Sitter's Club. When I was like seven, I read Lord of the Rings up to the third one, cuz it was to boring for me at that age. When I was 13, I started reading the James Bond stories, because that's what I was writing and the movies weren't and still aren't enough for me.

    Thumbs up

    I remember in the late 70's reading "Charlie, The Lonesome Cougar" over and over. I loved that book and it was also a Disney film.

    What's the plot? What's so great about it? I'm always looking for a new book to read.

    Um....It's kind of a love story. Hehe! It's probably pretty tame now, but in the late 70s/early 80s we had to hide it from the teachers.
