it was amazing
bookshelves: childhood, loved-it

A much-beloved book during my pre-teen years. I loved Harriet. Loved her individualism and humor. Identified with the way she was always on the fringe of grade school society. I tried keeping a secret spy notebook like hers, but never put much in it. My classmates weren't all that interesting.

yes. i used to carry this into my tree along with my own notebook and plan my excursions for the day.

i was a weird kid.

Misha I think having been a weird kid is the default requirement for being on Goodreads. (And how funny is it that the GR comment spellchecker thinks "Goodreads" is a misspelled word?)

I never had a tree, never had any place of my own where I could just think. I suppose that's one reason (one of many) why I'm such a loner as an adult -- never got any privacy as a kid, so now I savor it.

Gawd, I wish I could go back to sleep.
