          I loved reading everything I could as a kid. Where the Wild Things Are was a favorite as well as many sports biography books. Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, any sports star you could think of, I had to know everything about.


          Love those books. In fact, just bought them for my 8 year old daughter for christmas this year

                  Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes which had very un-PC versions of classic fairy tales, a great book.

                  The Little Bear series

                  Mercer Mayer's Little Critter series

                  I got into H.G. Wells through my third grade music teacher. She played us Jeff Wayne's 1978 Prog Rock adaptation of War of the Worlds and I got a hold of the original book and loved it. I also read The Time Machine, The Invisible Man and Shape of Things To Come shortly afterward.

                          I remember the Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark getting passed around in gradeschool as well.
                          Some of those stories (not to mention the drawings were pretty gross) we're legitimately scary.
                          I was watching the 80s version of the Twilight Zone on SyFy (ugh I hate typing that, i'll never get used to the new logo) and the opening reminds me of one of the stories. The opening first starts out panning over a horizon that you can see through the window in the dark and empty room. It creeps me the heck out. In the story it reminds me of, it's a girl who's bed faces her bedroom window, and out her window she can see far acrossed the field, where the woods starts. All of a sudden she sees something moving among the trees. It starts to slowly descend down the hill, towards the house. Closer and closer it gets, and then it disappears. She walks over to the window and peers out and there it is, staring back at her. Ugh LOL

                          I think it creeps me out so much because I had a window when I was growing up that faced a field that had a grave yard beyond it, and you could see the tops of the tombstones. Always used to creep me out. And of course, the babysitter urban legend from the book alway creeped me out as well, because when I was home alone in the early evenings like 5 or 6 my mind would play tricks on me and i'd think i'd hear footsteps coming up the cellar stars.
                          :)

                            I never read books as a kid. Sad isn't it? The fact that I was ADD and no one encouraged me to read had a lot to do with it. Odd enough I'm a really good reader as an adult and read all the time now.

                              I used to really like the R. L. Stine Fearstreet book series. I read those a lot in middle and high school. In elementary school, I loved reading books by Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume. The Ramona series and its spin-offs (Beverly Cleary) were absolute favorites! Wait, or were the Henry books first and then the Ramona series. I can't remember. I just liked all of them.

                              Let's see. I also enjoyed The Berenstein Bears, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Dear Mr. Henshaw, the Arthur books, mostly any book based on a fairy tale story, and a bunch of other stuff. Too bad I'm blanking out at the moment.

                              Oh man, I loved those stories!!! They were so creepy! Well, the drawings in the books were always creepy, and yet, I loved that creepiness.

                              I probably would've found that incredibly cool. I had issues. lol A dark and stormy night, while overlooking a graveyard in hopes of spirits rising from the dead. I think I always liked things that normal people found scary.
