I loved reading Horrible Harry too! There was this one book that I read like at least once a week and just started on any page because I had the whole book memorized >.<

message 29: by [deleted user] (last edited Apr 01, 2015 07:04PM) (new)

- Nancy Drew, Charlotte's Web, and The Hardy Boys.

Was never much of a reader -- my teacher(s) had to force me to pick up a book, and when reading time came along, I would huddle in the corner doing anything BUT reading.

Now I can't get enough reading...

NOW: Young Adult books. Divergent. Ashfall series...etc.

:)

I also remember one of my favorites being Among the Hidden.
