For this one, a favourite childhood book, I felt like I was running out of time. My goal was to have a different book for each category, but with time running out and so many books demanding my attention, I decided I had to double up where I could. I have many favourite childhood books, and still have the editions of them I had as a child.
So, I chose The Secret Garden which my grandmother first gave me at age seven, and I have loved it ever since. Does it have its flaws? Yes, all books are going to have flaws that people will pick up on, but this is one that I will always treasure as it was the first novel I remember reading on my own at age seven.
I have two more categories left – and I do know what I am going to read for them. I will get them done, I hope, and then I will hopefully have completed all of my challenges, perhaps with a few exceptions for the overly prescriptive categories that may not be filled.
