Re: Childrens Books:Do You Remember These?

I devoured every book that came my way, from Enid Blyton, Dickens, Dumas, Robert Louis Stevenson, plus of course Little Women, Anne of Green Gables and their sequels. I loved The Scarlet Pimpernel, Robinson Crusoe, Kidnapped etc. I also read all of my deceased Dad's Saint books by Leslie Charteris, he had the whole lot. Then I moved on to Dennis Wheatley, The Devil Rides Out and To the Devil a Daughter.

I still read at least two books a week. I prefer real books, but also have a huge selection on Kindle. I rarely read a book twice, except for To Kill a Mockingbird (my favourite), which I have read several times.

Re: Childrens Books:Do You Remember These?

When I was a nipper one book that I read time and time again was called "King of the Golden River".
Every Christmas at Sunday school we were all given books. I had "Robinson Crusoe" "Swiss Family Robinson" "Roving Traders" and several more the names of which I have forgotten.

As a young teenager it was 'Fanny Hill' all the way for quite a few years.

Those are the same ones I had. All gone now though. But I have been pondering with the idea of downloading them in audio books, just to revisit a carefree happy, (mostly) time when I could lose myself in a book world.
