    My favorite book was the secret garden as a child. When I grew to be 11 I loved Victoria Holt and read every one of her books. I then moved on to horrors, thrillers etc. One thing my mother did was made sure that I read all of the classics. I am one of the few people I know who has indeed read all of the classic novels. I loved every moment of it. The Count of Monte Cristo, Treasure Island, The Boy King Arthur, Little Women, Pride and Prejudice, Rebecca… the list goes on and on…

  2. It is a toss-up between Dostoevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” and Anton Levay’s “The Satanic Bible.”

    The first time I fell in love with an author, I was probably about 8 years old, and it was Laura Ingalls Wilder. At age 10 it was between Mark Twain, Sterling (what the heck was his first name – Call of the Wild etc.), and A Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes). Then by 13, it was a toss-up between Charles Dickens, the Bronte sisters, and Jane Austen. At 15 I read most of the Bible so that was my obsession that summer. Now? I like a variety of stuff, and I don’t suppose I have a favorite author, though there are definitely some I would never read again. My favorite book is still the Bible.

    Oh, I almost forgot – I LOVED these books when I was around 8 (the uncut versions): Charlotte’s Web, Pinocchio, Heidi, and The Wizard of Oz.

    And when I was really little, before I really understood the whole “author” thing, I loved anything by P.D. Eastman, and The Little House by E.M. Burnam. SUPER book – can’t wait to share it with my kids!

    Oh, by the way, “Sterling” in my first post was really Jack London. Not sure what I was thinking, but a cup of coffee does work wonders, doesn’t it?

    I also loved Laura Ingalls Wilder. I really loved “Betsy” books as a child but I can’t find them anymore. I read anything I could get my hands on.

    Now, I read Danielle Steele (though her books are to predictable for me now but I still read them just because I‘ve read them all).
    Steven King, Mary Higgins Clark

    I have to stop here. I read to much, two or three books a week. There are to many to name.

    Bailey’s favorite book is called Monkey Trouble. Cute book.
    I can’t even think right now what my favorite is. I mostly read autobiographies, most interesting I think was Amy Fisher, the Long Island Lolita. I’m REALLY wanting Chelsea Handlers new book, Hello Vodka, it’s me Chelsea. I love her and watch her EVERY single night!!

    It’s Dr. Seuss now. We ALL love his books which makes them easier for us to read to Dylan.

    I like short romance/spy type books. If they are over 400 pages, I lose interest because I don’t have long stretches to read.
