    I just took a trip down memory lane when I went for a gander in our local charity shop. There on the bookshelf was the whole "Little House on The Prairie" series by Laura Ingalls Wilder,

    Oh how I loved these books and watching it on tv. I still have a couple of the books on my shelf today. "On the Banks of Plum Creek" and "The Long Winter".

    I loved it. I can still see nasty Nelly Olsen now with her blonde ringlets!!!

    Anyone else remember or have I lost the plot?:D

    What was your favourite story?

    I used to love watching Little House on the Prairie:)

    I used to read all the Enid Blyton boarding school books. Mallory Towers and all that.

    Most of the time I read poetry. Always loved poetry.

    You took me back there hun. I remember reading all the Malory Towers series as well!!! Loved them!! They made boarding school sound appealing to me....LOL

    Poetry....I love it too....wish I had nothing else to do but read it. I would spend all day doing it if I could....x

    I loved the Mallory Towers books - I was going to buy the set for my eldest for her birthday but they only had the 'odd' numbers instead of all of them :(

    The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was the best book I read as a child.

    I'm trying to think of the other school book like Malory Towers that Enid Blyton wrote. What was the name of it?:confused:

    In my early teens I remember enjoying the Mary Ann books by Catherine Cookson.

    I'd forgotten about them

    I loved the Alfred Hitchcock seris of books featuring the 3 detectives.

    That seems to have set the scene for my adult light reading tastes because I love action/adventure books if I haven't got my head in an autobiography :)

    Me too - I loved it with a passion! I thought it was just so sad but didn't get the mockingbird analogy for a while lol. I wanted to be Scout with her lovely dad (esp when I saw the film with Gregory Peck - awwwww!)
