It’s interesting how a book reading journey evolves. Here’s my book journey…
Right out of kindergarten, Noddy’s brightly colored storybooks and his Toyland friends became good pals – to visit as often as possible in the library.
Secret Seven and Famous Five
At age 7, it was fun to solve ‘mysteries’ with the SS and Scamper. But a couple of years later, when the Famous Five (with Timmy) became my favorite series, the 7 seemed ‘childish’ by contrast.
William and Hardy Boys
Entering double digits, the rough and ready William and his Outlaws won my heart for adventure, alongside Frank, Joe and Chet. Nice, clean fun with just a hint of mortal danger, that paralleled our way of life in middle school.
