Question of the Month

As a life-long avid reader, I'm in love with Michael's question for this month, which is...

“What was the first book (or book series) you really fell in love with?”
As a life-long avid reader, this is also a really challenging question. It's hard to go back to when you were three to remember what you read then. However, I do recall very much enjoying the Madeline, Curious George and Babar books. As I grew older, series I enjoyed included Anne of Green Gables and The Chronicles of Narnia.

Today I'm a big fan of cozy mysteries and one of my favourite characters is Agatha Raisin.

Until recently I had over 1450 books on my Goodreads to-read list, but I hacked it back to just under 900 for greater manageability. That being said, I'm always on the lookout for new and worthwhile titles. What are some of your favourites?

  1. I adore The Chronicles of Narnia. I read all of the books to each of my children, and I often give the books to other children.


  2. 900 to-read books - what a truly impressive number. I'm sure your number of books already read is equally impressive. Of course it's hard to choose the one favorite. When I answered this question, I went not with the favorite but with the one book that turned my life in a different direction.

    1. Enjoyed reading your post, Olga - great story! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. As is so often the case, I had no idea that Babar and Madeline started as books. Those were two TV cartoons that played a part in my childhood.

    1. Glad to enlighten you, Michael. Now for a trip to your local library ;)
