My teacher always gave me books to read, even though I hated reading books as a child (and still somewhat dislike fictional books). The ones that I remember actually liking were probably My Side of the Mountain and Hatchet... only those stick out for some reason. Then, there was If you give a mouse a cookie :3
As of the second-grade, my favorite book was Frank L Baum's The Wizard of Oz. I actually did a book report on it for class.
Before that, and still, I absolutely adore The Eleventh Hour, by Graeme Base.
Other favorites include:
The Nancy Drew series (holy shit she finally has a cell phone)
The Harry Potter series
The Healer's Keep
anything written by Andy Rooney
Eragon/Eldest (Brisingr sucked balls, and when is the Inheritance coming?!) by Christopher Paolini
Yeah, I loved that, especially with the occasional crossovers and cameos and whatnot. I could never decide which of the two I wanted to buy at the shop, let alone which one was actually better. And damn, I can remember my favourite characters... Beryl the Peril, Desperate Dan, The Bash Street Kids, and most of all, Calamity James, he was my very favourite. A story of a lad who has all the normal things in life, but has so damn much bad luck, so much that it's almost cruel, and he always tried to lead a normal life, I thought. Inspirational, kinda.
Also I went down memory lane and googled up those old comics. It's been around 75 years, and Desperate Dan and Bananaman are getting the can and now there's gonna be a lot of pop culture crap put in those comics. So much upset.
