Read It Again, Sam


The day job is breathing down my neck, so I can't get truly dive into today's Friday Fives topic. However, I put together five of the books I couldn't get enough of as Single Digit Alicia.


Just looking at these is totally making me want to go read them. Right. Now.

What were some of your favorites as a kid?

  2. I'm not sure if it's a good thing that I still sometimes describe my days as terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad--but it shows how much I loved that book and how it stuck with me.
    Great choices!

  8. The Velveteen Rabbit was one of my wife's favorites. I bought her a deluxe edition for our first Christmas after we married. Awww. :) I'd never read it until then! Madeline was another I knew nothing about until I had children. The anthology we bought for our oldest child has been handed down (or tossed mercilessly, given its condition) to her siblings.
