  4. Wow. Good question. I'd say it was going to stay at my grandmother's little cabin when I was young. Mo mother took me to the library and she let me take as much time as I wanted selecting books to take with me. I read my books and my grandmother asked me questions about them afterwards. I can see it all so clearly. Such a special week.

  8. Mine would be standing in a queue just before midnight with my dad to get the final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter was a huge part of of my life as a child/teenager, and there was a mixture of excitement and sadness to read the final book but because once its was read it would all be over.

  15. Reading to my sister who is 15 years older than me. She’d nod and praise me and I’d be SO happy. A few years ago she finally told me the truth, I was holding the books upside down and reciting from memory! She’d read the Dr. Seuss books to me so many times I had memorized a lot of them. I was probably 3 or 4. I laugh every time I pick up one of those books!

  50. I will NEVER forget the day (I was 13) when I read Jane Eyre. Reason being was that I CLEARLY remember reading the last page, putting the book down and didn't want to "let go" of my heros. You know that moment when the story finishes but you wish it would continue forever?! It was THAT very moment that I discovered British literature (I am Eastern European, to add :)) and I never looked back since.

  52. I used to get an annual every year when I was younger and looked forward to that at Christmas. One memory that sticks in my mind was "Santa" used to bring me a sack of presents and one year a present jumped out and hid itself under the wardrobe and we found it mid-January when all the hassle of Christmas and New Year was out of the way. It was a book and had a poem in it by Spike Milligan and I can still remember it to this day. So think that needs a mention too. I also remember the day when I was allowed to go into the "grown-up" part of the library. I felt so adult doing that. Oh and a favourite has mentioned my name in her last three books, not sure she knows how much that means. Sorry for the long essay.
