Who Was Your Harry Potter?

(The New York Times has a review of the new Harry Potter book; Ms. Rowling is not happy, despite the fact it is a good review.)

ANYHOW, there is a blog poll up asking NY Times readers if they experienced anything like the Harry Potter phenomenon when they were kids, and the answers coming back from Times readers are awesome. I want to meet some of these people based on their answers.

So here is the same question posed to my blog readers: What were your favorite books when you were a kid?

Mine include: Little House on the Prairie series, the Bobbsey Twins, The Westing Game!!!, Chronicles of Narnia, Harriet the Spy/The Long Secret/Sport, the Shoes books by Noel Streatfield, (I think the only one I didn't have was Skating Shoes), the Betsy books by Carolyn Haywood, the Misty (pony/horse) books by Marguerite Henry and the Beezus and Ramona books by Beverly Cleary! As I got older, I loved the Anne of Green Gables books, the Time books by Madeleine L'Engle and Nancy Drew Mysteries!!
