#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.

I think Anne of Green Gables is definitely a middle school book, but if high school students are reading it, I’m happy they’re reading!

I absolutely loved all of the original Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy mysteries.  I also read the Bobbsey Twins,  I was a voracious reader since I had asthma and my activities were limited.  

Sweet Valley High with the twins were one of my favorites. Since I am a twin I love to read stories about other twins.

One of my favorite middle reader books will always be Where the Red Fern Grows.  It made me laugh and cry.

I grew up with my mother's Happy Hollister book series. I adored them and my kids read them now!

   My brother and I always loved fantasy books. I think my favorite fantasy author was Wayne Thomas Batson. I also really liked Chuck Black, The Miller Brothers, and a series by Jerry B. Jenkins and Chris Fabry called "The Wormling Series". 

   Now, outside of fantasy, I LOVED all of Lois Walfrid Johnson's books, but ESPECIALLY her "Viking Quest" series!

p.s. I also really enjoyed the Anne of Green Gables and Elsie Dinsmore series', along with Little Women and An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott. 

I read the whole baby sitters club little sister series! thank you for the chance

I read everything I could get my hands on. I especially loved Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, and Trixie Beldon series.

I have loved reading from a very young age. I read the entire Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and Trixie Belden series. My boys do not love books the way I do, which is disappointing, but if they find a book that interests them they will read it. I'd like to introduce your books to my 12 year old. We like reading action/adventure books together. Thank you for the chance to win a Kindle. 

Vickie, I grew up hating to read. These adventures and mysteries are patterned after many of the dramatic films I was a part of for most of my life. I hope they work well with your boys.
