Thanks for the meme Paula. You are the first to ever meme me. And on my favorite subject no less. I really enjoyed it. I think I wrote too much...I just can't seem to stop writing sometimes. I enjoyed reading your list. I'm with you on the children's books. The list is endless.

All your book choices I love! Christy was one of my favorites! Where the Red Fern Grows...another favorite... We are big Shel Silverstein fans too! Gosh we have a lot of similarities. Glad you enjoyed the book memes. There is another blog meme ( sort of) on my blog today from Barb about How did you arrive at the name of your blog and what is the story behind it...check it out! :)
