Over the last year or so, my hon and I have been doing a lot of downsizing, getting rid of maybe 50% of our stuff. Which means I’ve been sorting through everything and taking a lot of trips down memory lane. I found this gem the other day. Based on my favorite miniseries when I was a kid. And apparently one of my favorite books. By the look of it, I may have read this book a few times during my youth. Check out the fine duct tape work on the spine.
I also found these. Such an odd collection.
What books do you still have from your childhood?

Here’s my latest Quote I Love:
“There’s nothing wrong with reading a book you love over and over. When you do, the words get inside you, become a part of you, in a way that words in a book you’ve read only once can’t.” – Gail Carson Levine
“See, she goes places when she reads. I know all about that. When I’m reading, wherever I am, I’m always somewhere else.” ― Rebecca Wells
“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.” —Joyce Carol Oates
