    Default Favorite books you remember reading as a kid?

    Post here some of your favorite books you read when you were a kid.

    My favorite series was Choose Your Own Adventure. These books were real fun to read and I read all of them.

    I remember really liking to read Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective. The books had detective stories, which you, the reader, would solve. Encyclopedia Brown was a nickname of this kid who new a lot and thus was able to various crimes. I really enjoyed reading the books and solving those mysteries

    Bunnicula was my favorite series as a kid. You have to love a juice-drinking vampiric bunny.

    After that ... My Father's Dragon and Garfield books.
