Hi Max - I used to devour all the Walter Farley books about horses. I was horse crazy when I was a kid and I read some of them more than once. In fact, I think I may have read most of them more than once! :) Would love to win that kindle. Thanks for your generosity.

Blessings, Marcia Laycock

I read the Trixie Belsen series, because they had horses in them.  And mystery!

Oh yes, I read those too!

Thanks for putting this in the right spot, Phred! :)

You are welcome!

I loved Little House books when I was young. Read them all to my daughters too.

I read the Little House books when my daughter was in middle school.  Great discovery for me!

I loved the Little House series, Cherry Ames, Nancy Drew and the Shoe books.  I introduced them to my daughter as well.  There are so many wonderful, wholesome books out there for children.  

I also read Cherry Ames, and for a while thought I would be a nurse.  But I just retired from teaching.

I loved Nancy Drew, Little House books, and I read all of my mom's Cherry Ames and Kathy Martin books.  I am a nurse. :)

I loved all the animal stories! Black Beauty, Misty of Chincoteague, Lassie !  I do have a grandson who loves to read.. I've shared some from this group with him :) 

#2.  I would choose Anne of Green Gables as a Middle Reader book, although some of my h.s. students did book reports on it.  I would love to win.  Thank you so much.
