Top 5 Bookish Childhood Moments

hosted by Readage: Snapshots of a Reading Life
 


1) My Childhood Library

I grew up in New Haven Ct, which is the home of Yale College. I loved my local public library. It had lion statues guarding the opening and a wonderful childrens section in the basement.

2) The Adventures of Robin Hood. My mother read this to me and it has remained one of my favorite stories. I will read any book with a Robin Hood theme attached.

3) Library Saturdays

Going to the library every week was mandatory. I loved it! Within minutes I would have my ten books ( the maximum back then) and would wait on the steps for my sister. My sister was not a reader and so every week there was the battle of wills between her and my mother. We could not leave until my sister picked a book!

4) Archie comics

My father loved comics. When he married my mother he gave them up because my mother thought them childish. However when we came along he was able to introduce us to those spinning racks of 4 color goodness. I think he enjoyed having them in the house. Of course everyone reads Archie comics at some point in their lives.

5) Are you There God, It's Me Margaret

This Judy Blume  book was the bridge between children's books and middle grade. I loved it so much and leaned a lot of things my parents and teachers weren't educating us about. It's actually the only Judy Blume book I've read! 
 

Opening Meme



1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
