One book I remember in particular is Betsy's Little Star by Carolyn Haywood, first published by Morrow in 1950. Star is Betsy's four-year-old sister. I read that book over and over; it's the first of a few that I would read more than once. I don't remember what appealed to me so much that I would read it so many times.
I loved the Nancy Drew mysteries. I read some that were my mom's, got some new ones, and checked some out from the library. I read a few Bobbsy Twins stories and Hardy Boys mysteries, but I preferred Nancy Drew. I read Nancy Drew mysteries for years. I guess I have loved mysteries since I was a kid. Still love them. Another favorite of mine was Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I also loved to read biographies of people from colonial America. Well, the ones written for kids. I couldn't get enough of them and was so disappointed when it appeared I'd read all the ones the library had to offer.

I have always loved to read and have always loved books.
