I remember somebody telling me I was like girl, because of my love of books. Another friend of mine said why do you talk about books as if it were a film. LOL! I remember reading a book all day from the moment I woke up, till the time it was to sleep. I remember reading 'Watership Down' and finishing it in three days, that's how much I loved reading. I found reading to be very addictive. I would lie on my back on bed and read library books.

I use to love 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe'. This was when I was in secondary school. I had two choices of the book, one with the nice cover of Aslan the lion and the other not so illustrated book, I went with the nice cover version. There is a saying that you should not judge a book by it's cover but I was doing exactly that. I use to lover picking books from the library which had nice covers.

I must have read this book at least ten times, that's how much I use love reading.

Hello pepecat,

No, not all of them. All of them were very boring, but this book stood more than the others. I enjoyed just this book, I did not like the others. I only read a chapter or two of the other books before I got really bored.

Cheers Ches

It's very sad when Charlotte dies. Yeah I know it's only a book and totally fictional but it still affected me when I was a kid.

I remember buying this book from W.H Smiths back when I was in my early teens. I use love the fighting fantasy books and I read most of them. Scorpian Swamp was another favourite. I never use to cheat, if I rolled the dice and lost, I started right back to the beginning.

Hi Chesterking. I remember a teacher reading us Charlotte's Web when I was a kid at school, I loved that story. I also loved the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

I also played Fighting Fantasy books when I was a kid. Never played Midnight Rogue. I really loved Forest of Doom and Deathtrap Dungeon.
