And now for something completely different... A sort of "meme"
Was looking for some good kid's songs about friendship for apple_pi, so I pulled out a little binder of campsongs and such that I put together some time in my teens. Yep - typed up on a REAL typewriter and all! With cute little magazine pics pasted in, if they fit the song (*rolling eyes, groaning*). *L*! But, look! There's one page titled "Books", and a listing of books... I assume they were my favorites at the time. So, just to show how times haven't really changed...*G*:

The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien

Watership Down, by Richard Adams

Lord of the Flies, by William Golding

Wow... the books you read at the age really ARE the ones that stick with you! Question is: how old was I?

I agree, the ones I started in my teens are definately ones that I adore today, although there are others that I have since added to my list :D

You're ME! Well, no, not really, but pretty close. Does that mean I'll grow up to be like you? Because that sounds like fun. :D
