The 19th…

A book:

So many to choose from!

My childhood favorite was Alice in Wonderland. I used to climb this tree down at the end of our driveway and sit and read it all day long. I had a hardcover copy with gold pages and I wore it out. I also loved anything by Roald Dahl.

I think as an adult, I’m gonna have to go with Brave New World. I know it’s dystopian. I still love it. It’s my favorite of the genre. It barely beats out Fahrenheit 451. I know that Orwell’s 1984 is THE standard for this group, but it’s not my favorite. Yes, I still love it, but not as much as these others.

    1. Oh my goodness! I love all of those except I am embarrassed to say I’ve never heard of Enid Blyton! So now I may have to go to the bookstore…


  1. What a wonderful memory that is! I didn’t have a lot of ‘normal books’ when I was a kid… most of what I was given to read was published in Communist China. When I was ten (?) I was gifted ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Fellowship of The Ring’ series by my mother’s boyfriend. A little later on I used to read a lot of Zane Grey… but my favourite book (as an adult) is ‘Mockingbird’ by Walter Tevis. If you’re into dystopian novels, I think you’d love it.
