When I was young, I used a mirror to reflect the light of a street-lamp, across onto a white wall beside my pillow. The light was bright enough to read by; until my mother came to bed, at ten thirty or eleven o'clock at night.
And so it was that I read many books. And it lead me to wonder what were the titles? What were other peoples favourite books of their childhoods?
Are Annuals still as popular?
What series books are still firm favourites?
Which are still considered classic reading, for families who want to in-still old fashioned values into their children, and who want to share the joy of a book well loved?
